  8. Using URIs to effectively transmit sensor data and metadata

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kokkinaki, Alexandra; Buck, Justin; Darroch, Louise; Gardner, Thomas

    2017-04-01

    Autonomous ocean observation is massively increasing the number of sensors in the ocean. Accordingly, the continuing increase in datasets produced, makes selecting sensors that are fit for purpose a growing challenge. Decision making on selecting quality sensor data, is based on the sensor's metadata, i.e. manufacturer specifications, history of calibrations etc. The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has developed the Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standards to facilitate integration and interoperability of sensor data and metadata. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Semantic Web technologies enable machine comprehensibility promoting sophisticated linking and processing of data published on the web. Linking the sensor's data and metadata according to the above-mentioned standards can yield practical difficulties, because of internal hardware bandwidth restrictions and a requirement to constrain data transmission costs. Our approach addresses these practical difficulties by uniquely identifying sensor and platform models and instances through URIs, which resolve via content negotiation to either OGC's sensor meta language, sensorML or W3C's Linked Data. Data transmitted by a sensor incorporate the sensor's unique URI to refer to its metadata. Sensor and platform model URIs and descriptions are created and hosted by the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC) linked systems service. The sensor owner creates the sensor and platform instance URIs prior and during sensor deployment, through an updatable web form, the Sensor Instance Form (SIF). SIF enables model and instance URI association but also platform and sensor linking. The use of URIs, which are dynamically generated through the SIF, offers both practical and economical benefits to the implementation of SWE and Linked Data standards in near real time systems. Data can be linked to metadata dynamically in-situ while saving on the costs associated to the transmission of long metadata descriptions. The transmission

  13. URI promotes the migration and invasion of human cervical cancer cells potentially via upregulation of vimentin expression.

    URI is known to act as an oncoprotein in several tumors. Our previous studies have shown that URI is associated with the migration process in cervical and gastric cancer cells, but the mechanisms remain to be determined. Given the fact that URI positively regulates vimentin expression, we therefore investigated how URI regulated vimentin expression affects the migration and invasion of cells from two human cervical cancer cell lines HeLa and C33A, which differentially express URI. We have shown that knock-down of URI in HeLa cells using URI siRNA caused decreased vimentin mRNA and protein levels along with attenuated cell motility. Meanwhile, overexpression of URI by transfection of PCMV6-URI in C33A cells resulted in increased vimentin expression and enhanced cell migration and invasion. We have also used TGF-β to induce vimentin expression, which enhanced the cell migration and invasion abilities affected by URI, while inhibition of vimentin by siRNA attenuated URI's effect on cell migration and invasion. In addition, we have performed luciferase reporter and ChIP assays, and the results support that URI indirectly enhances the activity of vimentin promoter. Taken together, our results suggest that URI plays essential roles in the migration and invasion of human cervical cancer cells, possibly via targeting vimentin expression.

  19. Scholarly Context Adrift: Three out of Four URI References Lead to Changed Content.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Shawn M Jones

    Full Text Available Increasingly, scholarly articles contain URI references to "web at large" resources including project web sites, scholarly wikis, ontologies, online debates, presentations, blogs, and videos. Authors reference such resources to provide essential context for the research they report on. A reader who visits a web at large resource by following a URI reference in an article, some time after its publication, is led to believe that the resource's content is representative of what the author originally referenced. However, due to the dynamic nature of the web, that may very well not be the case. We reuse a dataset from a previous study in which several authors of this paper were involved, and investigate to what extent the textual content of web at large resources referenced in a vast collection of Science, Technology, and Medicine (STM articles published between 1997 and 2012 has remained stable since the publication of the referencing article. We do so in a two-step approach that relies on various well-established similarity measures to compare textual content. In a first step, we use 19 web archives to find snapshots of referenced web at large resources that have textual content that is representative of the state of the resource around the time of publication of the referencing paper. We find that representative snapshots exist for about 30% of all URI references. In a second step, we compare the textual content of representative snapshots with that of their live web counterparts. We find that for over 75% of references the content has drifted away from what it was when referenced. These results raise significant concerns regarding the long term integrity of the web-based scholarly record and call for the deployment of techniques to combat these problems.

    Fully automated urine analyzers now play an important role in routine urinalysis in most laboratories. The recently introduced UriSed 3 has a new automated digital imaging urine sediment analyzer with a phase contrast feature. The aim of this study was to compare the performance of the UriSed 3 and UX-2000 automated urine sediment analyzers with each other and with the results of the manual microscopic method. Two hundred seventy-seven (277) samples of leftover fresh urine from our hospital's central laboratory were evaluated by two automated urine sediment analyzers-UriSed 3 and UX-2000. The results of urine sediment analysis were compared between the two automated analyzers and against the results of the manual microscopic method. Both devices demonstrated excellent agreement for quantitative measurement of red blood cells and white blood cells. UX-2000 had a lower coefficient correlation and demonstrated slightly lower agreement for squamous epithelial cells. Regarding semiquantitative analysis, both machines demonstrated very good concordance, with all applicable rates within one grade difference of the other machine. UriSed 3 had higher sensitivity for small round cells, while UX-2000 showed greater sensitivity for detecting bacteria and hyaline casts. UriSed 3 demonstrated slightly better specificity, especially in the detection of hyaline and pathological casts. Both instruments had nearly similar performance for red blood cells and white blood cells measurement. UriSed 3 was more reliable for measuring squamous epithelial cells and small round cells, while the UX-2000 was more accurate for detecting bacteria and hyaline casts. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    Background Patient self-sampling allows for remote collection and return to clinic or laboratory by post. Urine samples, although convenient, are challenging to post. This study evaluated UriSwab (Copan, Brescia, Italy) as a collection and transport vessel for Chlamydia trachomatis (CT), Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG) and Mycoplasma genitalium (MG) detection by polymerase chain reaction, compared with flocked swab and neat urine. Five replicates of each specimen type were prepared from previously characterised urine samples (n=330), stored at room temperature (RT) or 37°C, then extracted on day 1, 3, 7, 10 and 16 (VERSANT kPCR Sample Prep System, Siemens, Munich, Germany). Crossing thresholds (Cq) from CT and NG detection (VERSANT CT/GC DNA 1.0 assay kit, Siemens) and MG detection (real-time polymerase chain reaction assay) were compared using logistic regression, stratified by sample type, temperature and analyte. Mixed-model statistical techniques were used to assess correlation between repeated observations. UriSwab showed an increasing trend in Cq values at RT and 37°C for CT and NG, and RT for MG (all P<0.01). UriSwab was not statistically significantly different to neat urine, except CT at RT (0.83, 95% confidence interval: 0.51-1.15). Flocked swab similarly showed increasing Cq values at 37°C for CT, a significant decreasing trend at RT for MG and increasing trend at 37°C for MG. Flocked swab was not statistically significantly different from neat urine at RT and 37°C for CT and MG. UriSwab allows transport of urine for CT, NG and MG detection regardless of storage time or temperature, suggesting that CT and NG are stable for up to 16 days and MG up to 10 days.

    Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common types of infection. Currently, diagnosis is primarily based on microbiologic culture, which is time- and labor-consuming. The aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic accuracy of urinalysis results from UriSed (77 Electronica, Budapest, Hungary), an automated microscopic image-based sediment analyzer, in predicting positive urine cultures. We examined a total of 384 urine specimens from hospitalized patients and outpatients attending our hospital on the same day for urinalysis, dipstick tests and semi-quantitative urine culture. The urinalysis results were compared with those of conventional semiquantitative urine culture. Of 384 urinary specimens, 68 were positive for bacteriuria by culture, and were thus considered true positives. Comparison of these results with those obtained from the UriSed analyzer indicated that the analyzer had a specificity of 91.1%, a sensitivity of 47.0%, a positive predictive value (PPV) of 53.3% (95% confidence interval (CI) = 40.8-65.3), and a negative predictive value (NPV) of 88.8% (95% CI = 85.0-91.8%). The accuracy was 83.3% when the urine leukocyte parameter was used, 76.8% when bacteriuria analysis of urinary sediment was used, and 85.1% when the bacteriuria and leukocyturia parameters were combined. The presence of nitrite was the best indicator of culture positivity (99.3% specificity) but had a negative likelihood ratio of 0.7, indicating that it was not a reliable clinical test. Although the specificity of the UriSed analyzer was within acceptable limits, the sensitivity value was low. Thus, UriSed urinalysis resuIts do not accurately predict the outcome of culture.

    Differentiation between glomerular and non-glomerular hematuria by observation of the erythrocyte morphology using phase-contrast is a time-consuming and labor-intensive procedure that requires skilled personnel. This paper has the purpose to evaluate the performance of UriSed (also called sediMAX in some countries) as an alternative to the phase-contrast microscopic analysis of erythrocyte morphology. 312 urine samples with hematuria were analyzed by UriSed and by phase-contrast microscopy. Based on the presence of codocytes and/or acanthocytes, samples were classified as non-glomerular and glomerular. Kappa correlation was used to assess the agreement between both methods. Our data showed excellent agreement between erythrocyte morphology analyzed by both methods (r = 0.974, kappa = 0.9484, p phase-contrast microscopy.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Nicolae LUPU

    2006-06-01

    Full Text Available A recent obvious strategy for a big number of international hotels groups is to disinvest. This is a technique named “sale and lease back” or "sale and management back", suggesting the sale of some hotel units, followed by francize or management contract, kipping the hotels under the same brand. If we add the francizing expansion, it result an important tendency for the biggest hotel companies to reduce the financial implication and immobilization. This tendency is present also in the Romanian hospitality industry, wich confront with an important francize and management contract expansion. The preference for one or other form of exploitation is based on the company general strategy and even on the trust given to the partner for hotel brand representation. The paper shows those tendencies with specific statistical dates and recent informations.

    Klaus Høyer

    2011-12-01

    Full Text Available Today, the medico industry is considered the largest export sector of Denmark, and the medical knowledge, on which it is based, requires access to bodies and human biological material. This material and these bodies are thus in a certain sense economic resources. At the same time, they are typically regarded as parts of individuals – of subjects. In certain situations, this duality becomes problematic. You cannot buy and sell “body parts”; individuals may own, but cannot be owned. It is, however, no easy task to keep the-body-as-subject separate from the-body-as-object, and the medical routine work is full of hybrids. In the present article, we discuss historically specific ways in which to create distinctions in the tension between being a patient who is the target for intervention, and supplying material for the treatment of others. We focus on the hip as a bone and as a metal prosthesis, where it becomes the subject of exchange. With the article, we specifically wish to underline the necessity of recognizing the basic ambiguity sourrounding the body, and the meaning of this ambiguity for how we organize the exchange of everything which is neither subject nor an unambiguous object.

    Full Text Available Este artigo tem como objetivo discutir a iniciativa de integração – Aliança Bolivariana para os Povos da Nossa América – formada por países da América Latina com o intuito de alterar a lógica das relações de integração e cooperação e estabelecer uma ordem regional inspirada no Socialismo do Século XXI. Busca-se apresentar a iniciativa como instrumento político de transformação para, a partir disso e por meio da análise da forma como se desenvolveu e atuou, compreender a atual situação em que se encontra. Argumenta-se que as dificuldades enfrentadas pela Aliança Bolivariana devem-se à ausência da base de sustentação sólida da sociedade civil dos países-membros, o que faz com que o aprofundamento da revolução não consiga avançar no sentido de formar uma contra-hegemonia capaz de criar um novo bloco histórico nas relações regionais.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Marcelo Coutinho

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available The purpose of this essay is to have a descriptive analysis of political violence in ten South American countries, between 2008 and 2011, from an exhaustive data systematics survey, collected from local newspapers, adopting a methodology well consolidated in this type of research. My hypothesis is that even distant from a war context and without the former bipolarity between capitalism and communism, violent conflicts in the region not only are frequent – despite the democratic advances and the relative economic stability – as they are results from a combination of social inequality and political exclusion. I argue that inclusive institutions, which are those that instead of repel they attract political opponents and actors, play a decisive role in significantly decreasing Political Violence Events (PVEs, especially in a continent marked by very heterogeneous societies. As theoretical approach, I use specific area studies associated with views called Neoweberian Historical Sociology, in particular classic authors such as Charles Tilly.

  11. URI's ARMADA Research Experience Leads to Inspiring Middle School Students to Become Ocean Stewards

    Science.gov (United States)

    Barrett, M.

    2010-12-01

    After spending three weeks aboard NOAA’s David Starr Jordon, my classroom has come alive with ocean life. My research experience was part of URI’s ARMADA project. I worked alongside scientists as they conducted ‘business as usual’ on the CSCAPE expedition. CSCAPE’s mission was to survey the cetacean abundance in the Pacific Ocean. My leg of the voyage took us as far out as 300 nautical miles from the coast and from points between Newport, Oregon and San Francisco, California. Throughout the three weeks, I learned with the best of them how cetaceans are identified, photographed, counted, and biopsied. This 2005 research experience is still with me today in the classroom. I have created a “Bring the Sea to Me” program in which my middle school students teach elementary students about ocean life. My students also use video footage and photographs from my expedition to create wildlife documentaries shown at our annual Film Festival. My students have also worked with engineering students from a local university to create a life-size fin whale, which travels with us on our teaching trips, and I have since purchased a 100-gallon touch tank to give the students a hands-on experience with the organisms we collect while seining along the New Jersey coast. The science I learned while on the Jordan has allowed me to teach my students how cetaceans are surveyed, how to identify cetaceans by their blows and dorsal fins, and how to identify individuals within a species. Survey graphs are interpreted and conclusions are drawn. The students also see the importance of writing in science when they explore my journals from the expedition (www.armadaproject.org/journals/2005-2006/barrett/barrett-8-21.htm). My participation in CSCAPE inspired me beyond belief, and I can only hope that my enthusiasm for the ocean is inspiring students to become stewards of our oceans.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Fernando José Ludwig

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available There is a tendency adopted by scholars and international actors today that sovereignty must be put apart in cases of human security, therefore international intervention can be justified as a solution to re-establish domestic order. This paper aims to discuss two dimensions of the United Nations state-building processes in post conflict societies. Firstly, is to explore when international intervention should stop intervening and let the local society(ies deal with their own problems of representation. Secondly, to verify in which ways this shift should take place in order to provide a peaceful transition from international to local power. Concerning this former point, and aware of the complexity of societal structuration process within each country, the goal here is to understand the variables that can change or influence the process of hegemonic groups to achieve the state’s power (and control for the next years. The argument here, following some trends of the actual literature, is that the process of state-building should evaluate the internal configuration and strengthen institutions of each countries in order to bring social representants together to dialogue, in which should result in a less turbulent transition from the international to national power-sharing.

    2011-06-01

    Full Text Available This paper tries to present a cautious evaluation of the ongoing uprisings against the various authoritarian regimes in the Middle East and North Africa, in countries so different as Tunisia, Egypt and Bahrain, Yemen, Syria or Libya. It is noting the fact that millions of young participants in the uprisings are not organized politically, real secular political parties do not exist or are extremely weak, and therefore warns about the threat from the organized radical Islamist movements as potential winners in these internal conflicts. It also tries to explain why the “Turkish model” of the Islamist AKP government is not the best solution to this revolutionary wave. The paper mentions the importance of the new networking media in the development of the events but not as a sine qua non condition for success, as the anti-democratic Islamists also skillfully use it. Finally, it warns about the threat to the existing peace agreements between Israel and its Arab neighbors and the possibility that the theocratic regime in Iran could be the real winner of the situation.

    Full Text Available This paper analyzes the multilateral Brazilian foreign policy, making the country a regional pivot in Latin America, a leading nation among developing countries, and an emerging world power. Without the status of nuclear power, Brazil establishes asymmetrical alliances to earn a place in a reformed UN Security Council, but must contend the seat with accredited competitors, such as India, as well a strategic partner, and counteract some riotous neighbors, as Mexico and Argentina. Meanwhile, through the establishment and the membership in several international organizations and multilateral mechanisms, Brasília developes a worldwide policy, maneuvering between new and old alliances, and playing a 'winning and losing carambole game'. Will the chrysalis turn into a butterfly?

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho visa analisar os distintos aspectos das intervenções “humanitárias” em conjunto com a conceitualização da soberania nacional. Diante das diferentes formas de intervenções humanitárias (como sanções, assistência material, ajuda, etc., é argumentado aqui que intervenções – nomeadamente militares – devem sempre ser utilizadas como sendo último recurso quando se pretende garantir tanto a proteção dos direitos humanos quanto a estabilidade regional/local. Há muito que se discute, tanto em termos teóricos quanto práticos, entre a soberania e a intervenção no seio das Relações Internacionais. Por um lado, o conceito secular de soberania, que deriva dos tratados de Westphfália (estatocêntrico e absolutamente contra qualquer tipo de intervenção nos assuntos internos dos Estados seguido, por outro lado, da consolidação gradual de direitos humanos “universais” que, por sua vez, advoga o dever de se intervir aquando se verifica abusos dos direitos humanos. A tentativa de fundir ambos os conceitos a fim de verificar a legitimidade das intervenções humanitárias no mundo contemporâneo tem sido um grande desafio para pesquisadores em todo o mundo, Finalmente, o presente paper argumenta que muitas vezes o termo intervenção humanitária é usado como sendo um fator fundamental para defender interesses de uma elite transnacional comum (localizada no seio dos países desenvolvidos e impor seus valores universais – tais como, democracia, abertura de mercados, etc.

    Full Text Available Isolated hematuria and its association with proteinuria, and urinary cast and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE disease activity, and decision for renal biopsy is a dilemma for physician in SLE patients. The aim of this study was to investigate 1. whether isolated hematuria is associated with active SLE, 2. to determine duration between hematuria and proteinuria and urinary cast, and 3. to determine renal histological type in SLE patients with isolated hematuria. All episodes of isolated hematuria between 1981 and 1997 were identified from Lupus Unit, Rheumatology Research Center database. Isolated hematuria was defined as >5 RBC/hpf in the absence of urinary infection and other renal manifestations. Relation of hematuria was assessed with proteinuria and urinary cast and SLE disease activity. Needle renal biopsy was done in 19 SLE patents with isolated hematuria. 4.42% (31/700 of our cohort had at least one episode of isolated hematuria. Out of 31 patients in whom the isolated hematuria was the first documented renal manifestation, 11 patients (35.48% developed another renal manifestation (25.8% proteinuria and 9.67% casts. 54.54% (6/11 of patients developed proteinuria and urinary cast within 3 months. The mean time for development of a second renal manifestation for the patients with isolated hematuria was 19.9 months. Renal needle biopsy was performed for 19 patients (5.78% type IV, 63.15% type III and 21.50% type II. The results of the present study indicate that isolated hematuria is not rare in SLE patients. Also, there was no significant relationship between isolated hematuria and anti ds-DNA, C3, C4 and major organ involvement in patients with SLE. Our study suggests that SLE patients who have isolated hematuria should undergo renal biopsy and that isolated hematuria should be considered a manifestation of active renal SLE.

    Full Text Available The aim of this article is to emphasize the transitional justice, as well as the historical moments inflicted by violent aggressions to human dignity during the authoritarian and totalitarian regimes in the XX century. Those violation experiences which resulted upon crimes of war speed up the creation of the international courts of justice, the elaboration of new legal patterns, new legal norms, which became very important for the development of the international law. In this way, the United Nations placed a key role in legalizing the international system, punishing the criminals and paying for the damages suffered by the war victims.

    Full Text Available An analysis is carried out to study the effect of heat and mass transfer on a non-Newtonian-fluid between two infinite parallel walls, one of them moving with a uniform velocity under the action of a transverse magnetic field. The moving wall moves with constant velocity in the direction of fluid flow while the free stream velocity is assumed to follow the exponentially increasing small perturbation law. Time-dependent wall suction is assumed to occur at permeable surface. The governing equations for the flow are transformed into a system of nonlinear ordinary differential equations by perturbation technique and are solved numerically by using the shooting technique with fourth order Runge-Kutta integration scheme. The effect of non-Newtonian parameter, magnetic pressure parameter, Schmidt number, Grashof number and modified Grashof number on velocity, temperature, concentration and the induced magnetic field are discussed. Numerical results are given and illustrated graphically for the considered Problem.

    Full Text Available Este artigo representa uma tentativa de compreensão do impacto das mudanças ocorridas, e ainda em curso, na Líbia após as manifestações da Primavera Árabe que resultaram na queda do regime autoritário e na implantação de mecanismos democráticos de governo, considerando as questões internas e externas e a crescente interdependência dos diferentes fatores político-econômicos sobre a sociedade líbia em sua transformação. Depois de uma série de ações desastrosas do governo de Khadafi, no âmbito local e internacional, os protestos levaram a sociedade a uma intervenção bélica direta sobre o governo e sobre o Estado. O impacto das intervenções estadunidenses nesta mudança é proeminente, devido às características peculiares ligadas à posição desta potência de um lado, e sua relação tensa com a Líbia de outro. Este trabalho apresenta alguns aspectos da problemática decorrente da contradição ideológica entre Secularismo e Islamismo Político no que diz respeito à participação no novo Estado e aos princípios da governança. Esta temática adquiriu uma importância acentuada nos atuais debates intelectuais e políticos no Mundo Árabe. Agora, mais do que nunca, a solução democrática representa o pressuposto conciliatório entre as duas correntes antagônicas, cujo confronto descolou-se do estágio de discurso teórico para o nível da luta armada.

Accordingly, the European companylaw, accounting and auditing have been identified as priorities. In the field of accounting and auditing, SMEswould benefit from further simplification of the Directives. The simplification European project coincides withthe publication of the International Accounting Standards Board “Exposure draft of a proposed IFRS forSMEs”. But, the European Commission does not believe that this IFRS would provide sufficient elements tosimplify the life of European SMEs. Nevertheless, it has identified a number of other measures that could lead totangible simplification for SMEs.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo enfrenta o problema da regulamentação das relações comerciais internacionais privadas. A falta de um regulador único e superior aos Estados coloca referidas relações em situação de incerteza e insegurança, quando diante de conflitos havidos na execução ou inexecução de contratos. A incidência das legislações nacionais nas lides internacionais de natureza privada prejudica a dinâmica do comércio internacional não apenas pela morosidade da apreciação do conflito pelos Estados nacionais, mas, principalmente, pela falta de conhecimento técnico dos juízes estatais, alheios que são às realidades do mercado. A busca por alternativas viáveis, capazes de solucionar tal limitação, direcionou a classe dos comerciantes internacionais ao modelo de direito embasado nos usos e costumes dos mercadores da Idade Média, denominado lex mercatoria, que, a partir da adaptação de seus princípios aos tempos atuais, vem adquirindo força e espaço no meio mercantil internacional. A questão relativa ao confronto entre a lex mercatoria e os ordenamentos jurídicos nacionais fomenta as mais variadas discussões teóricas, sendo recomendável ao estudioso do direito do comércio internacional um aprofundamento no tema. Diante da tímida produção acadêmica nacional envolvendo a questão, contribui intelectualmente para o debate do tema no Brasil, pois condensa o pensamento de diversos estudiosos.

    Full Text Available Análise dos movimentos sociais na França e na América Latina, num contexto de ausência de programas políticos de inserção de imigrantes. Por meio da violência, os jovens manifestantes expressam seu inconformismo com o desemprego, o fracasso escolar e outros sintomas da discriminação de que se julgam vítimas, inclusive por parte da polícia. A passagem do estado de natureza até o estado social produz no homem uma mudança bem acentuada, substituindo, em sua conduta, o instinto pelo sentimento de justiça, e outorgando a suas ações relações morais que antes estavam ausentes. À medida que a repressão se intensifique, fica ainda mais difícil a percepção da realidade. A França, como sociedade pode converter-se em uma ameaça a si própria ao não combinar integração e diferenças socioeconômicas, superando a oposição entre um modelo republicano e um comunitarismo carregado de agressividade. A América Latina vivenciou uma longa era de repressão militar, de violência, oprimida por um Estado distante dos indivíduos; incapaz de suprí-los com políticas públicas e sociais. Na sociedade civil é onde surgem e se desenvolvem os conflitos econômicos, sociais, ideológicos, religiosos, que as instituições públicas têm o dever de equacionar.

    Full Text Available Em vez de aproveitar o momento de expansão da projeção internacional do Brasil para se envolver em temas representativos para o conjunto dos atores do sistema internacional, parece que sua inserção caminha confusamente em direção contrária. Desde o início da presente década, o Brasil tem mantido evidente cordialidade com os governos de Cuba, da Venezuela, da Bolívia e mais recentemente com o governo do Irã. Ao se envolver em temas portadores de elevado grau de complicação das relações do país com os demais atores tomadores de decisão, a diplomacia brasileira parece sofrer de crise de identidade. Tomados isoladamente, esses casos passam uma percepção e geram críticas, o que é natural, uma vez que o novo projeto exterior brasileiro nunca foi esclarecido ou debatido de forma ampla, mas se analisados num conjunto pode-se observar o que há por trás de tal posicionamento brasileiro e que mensagem quer passar. Após todo o debate e a não formação da Área de Livre Comércio das Américas – ALCA, iniciativa lançada pelos EUA em 1994, o governo norte-americano, mesmo atuando em diversas frentes de combate ao terror, procurou fortalecer sua presença no subcontinente sul-americano. Os EUA começaram a costurar rede de acordos bilaterais de livre comércio com países da América Central e do Sul, viabilizou sua presença militar na região andino-amazônica por meio do Plano Colômbia, procurou cooperação para instalação de bases militares no Paraguai, o que os deixariam próximos à maior represa do mundo e à gigantesca hidrelétrica de Itaipu, reinstalaram a IV Frota, facilitando o monitoramento das reservas de hidrocarbonetos no litoral brasileiro e se apressaram em apoiar a convocação de eleições em Honduras após a destituição do presidente eleito. Toda essa aproximação não é de se estranhar. O gás, o petróleo, a selva, a água, o mercado consumidor fazem parte da cobiça de uma hiperpotência, qualquer que seja ela. E tudo isso acontecendo em sua volta não é de se estranhar que o Brasil reaja demonstrando que há contraponto. O país percebeu as manobras e decidiu que não pode aceitar tamanha interferência em sua região natural. Principalmente em momento em que o sul do continente se expressa com renovado vigor e quase unanimidade a favor de iniciativas de integração econômica de seus países e condenando a velha política de agressão contra as nações.

    Full Text Available O ponto histórico contextual de nosso estudo é o “Protocolo de Defesa da Concorrência no Mercosul – Protocolo de Fortaleza”, de 17/12/1996. Apesar desse marco regulatório ter sido ratificado por alguns Estados-Partes do Mercosul, e no Brasil tendo sido ratificado por meio do Decreto nº 3.602, de 18/9/2000, nos seus muitos anos de vigência apresentou pouquíssimo avanço. As causas apontadas são variadas: divergências políticas, dificuldades de implantação, questões de conjuntura decorrentes de crises econômicas mundiais. Este trabalho trata do estudo da atual situação regulatória do Mercosul, do ponto de vista da teoria construtivista das Relações Internacionais, considerando o projeto de integração regional e sua forma de regulação. Pretendemos demonstrar a evolução da regulação em matéria antitruste, focando a questão por meio da construção de interesses, identidades e cooperação. Concluímos positivo o andamento e a construção da regulação comunitária da Defesa da Concorrência, que tem progredido, especialmente do ano 2004 em diante, ainda que num ambiente fortemente marcado por assimetrias e divergências políticas, mas com convergências dos agentes institucionais.

    Full Text Available This paper deals with changes in the Brazilian economy that occurred since the 1990s trade liberalization. In particular, we discuss the change in the degree of openness in the country. For that, we use the traditional coefficient of openness to the industrial sector proposed by Haguenauer, Markwald and Pourchet (1998. Furthermore we also build up two other measures: (i the aggregate coefficient of openness; and ( ii the coefficients of openness to the industrial (another version and agriculture sectors. The results obtained in the three opening measures indicate an expansion of trade flows with regard to imports, but without presenting the corresponding elevation on the export side, except with regard to exports from the agricultural sector. Thus, it is evident that the variations in the coefficients of openness, beyond the effect of trade liberalization, were also strongly affected by the behavior of the exchange rate.

    Full Text Available Desde o final da década de 1990, comentaristas têm desenvolvido estruturas críticas a respeito da 'paz liberal' para entender as mais novas e intervencionistas abordagens sobre os problemas da reconstrução pós-conflito e da ameaça da falência de um Estado (ver, por exemplo, DUFFIELD, 2001; PARIS, 2002; PUGH, 2005; RICHMOND, 2005; RICHMOND; MAC GINTY, 2007. Em essência, a "paz liberal” é realizada para ir além das abordagens tradicionais de prevenção de conflitos, ou "paz negativa"; deve-se ir ao sentido da engenharia externa das sociedades pós-conflito através da exportação de quadros liberais de "boa governança", eleições democráticas, direitos humanos, Estado de direito e relações de mercado (ver RICHMOND, 2008a. Como Alex Bellamy resume: "O objetivo principal das operações de paz não se torna, assim, tanto a criação de espaços para a resolução de conflitos negociada entre os estados, mas a contribuição ativa para a construção de políticas, economias e sociedades liberais." (BELLAMY, 2008, p. 4-5 O discurso crítico das bandeiras liberais de paz sobre o problema é que, sob o pretexto de universalização dos quadros liberais ocidentais da democracia e do mercado, as necessidades e interesses das pessoas sujeitas à intervenção são muitas vezes ignorados, resultando na manutenção das desigualdades e conflitos, minando os objetivos de intervenientes externos. A crítica de intervenção e construção do Estado internacional, moldada pela construção da paz liberal, tem sido altamente eficaz ao desafiar suposições de soluções fáceis para situações pós-conflito (ver, por exemplo, CHESTERMAN; IGNATIEFF e THAKUR 2005; DOBBINS et al, 2007; PARIS e SISK, 2009a.

It centres its critical view on the tension between the standardised nature of the intervention peacebuilding model and the need to attend the local specificities of the people they are aimed at. It argues that only taking into account the local can peace be sustainable and longlasting since it is only achieved when it finds itself inclusive, auto-reflexive and participative. Radio Okapi, set up by MONUC and Fondation Hirondelle, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, was the case study chosen.

  19. Anti-haitianismo: uma tradição de identidade haitiana? 10.5102/uri.v13i2.3587

    Full Text Available Buscaremos apresentar, neste breve trabalho, algumas considerações acerca de dada discursividade anti-haitiana, que, produzida e disseminada na longa duração, constitui a base sobre a qual está assentada certa tradição de identidade haitiana. Trata-se de uma narrativa acerca do desenvolvimento e do estabelecimento desses discursos, cujas origens - na perspectiva apresentada - remontam ao período colonial, nas relações que se estabelecem entre colonizadores e colonizados, e se desenvolvem de maneira singular a partir do trauma da Revolução, que passa a figurar, por um lado, como o marco fundante do povo haitiano, e, por outro, de sua denegação. Procuraremos demonstrar como a recorrência de determinados traços dessa discursividade, mapeadas ao longo do texto, nos permite esboçar os contorno de uma tradição, na qual as identidades haitianas emergem, no mais das vezes, sob um viés negativo, depreciativo, e, por vezes, bárbaro.

    Full Text Available This article discusses the difficulty on reading and writing among college students, an authentic intellectual absence, making a relation with the individualism. Intellectual absence and individualism are two closely related social phenomenon, whose relation stimulates the curiosity of researchers. In the base of the individualism, there is the competition, and it can be perceived, among the students, a tendency of naturalization of it, what means they consider the competition a normal and definitive fact in society. In general, college students do not see nothing wrong about such situation and understand that the competition does not impact the formation of groups into the classroom. However, it was verified through such research that the formation of groups is not enough to build a proper culture of active intellectual interaction. In addition, students have no consciousness about the true reasons, which prevent such interaction. Important to this research was Durkheim, due to his explanatory method on individualism, as well as Weber, through his comprehensive method of analysis on the motivations of the social actors, following Bourdieu’s regards on research methodology. So, such research focus on a specific object, which is the difficulty on reading and writing by college students, and the question is related to the individualism phenomenon. The studies concluded that the individualism is the locus where the intellectual absence completes itself and they present us, in addition to the aim of the research, some classroom practices that can be allocated by professors.

    Full Text Available The present paper assesses the post-Cold War debate on whether the spread of nuclear weapons is either central or peripheral to stability in the Middle East. The argument here is that in the current unipolar structure the spread of such weapons is a major destabilising force in the Middle East. Nuclear deterrence is no guarantee of stability to the region. As security dilemmas are mutable overtime, this paper argues that a condition precedent to stability in the Middle East is a refinement of intersubjective knowledge.

    Full Text Available Para entender el por qué desapareció la V República y surgió el llamado nuevo socialismo del siglo XXI en Venezuela con el objetivo bolivariano, en el ensayo-documental se analiza en el presente estudio el proceso de construcción de un modelo de desarrollo socio-económico inspirado en la propuesta socialista expuesta por el comandante-presidente Chávez. Durante el período de la “gobernabilidad revolucionaria” , que abarca desde diciembre de 1998 hasta junio de 2011, se experimentó en Venezuela cambios políticos sustanciales, que reformularon las bases societales y estatales del poder de la estructura del modelo de desarrollo imperante y direccionalizado por las clases dominantes que al ejercer el control absoluto del Estado, desde la época de la colonia, fueron adaptando y ajustando la metamorfosis de los códigos de la lógica del capital de la sociedad capitalista a la realidad histórica concreta venezolana en cada uno de sus momentos evolutivos, esto es, la contextualización del perfeccionamiento del capitalismo en el engranaje de la dinámica domestica-mundial. Se concluye que con el socialismo bolivariano se acelera el proceso de construcción de un modelo de desarrollo socio-económico a partir del año 2007, configurando en él las características del poder comunal y economía social, sin embargo, la radicalización de las acciones políticas y gubernamentales revolucionarias fue modelada por el comandante-presidente Chávez durante el período enero-septiembre de 2010,; se retoma la radicalización en enero de 2011, que se prologaría todo el año y el siguiente (2012, pero limitaría por los anuncios de las condiciones de enfermedad de Chávez desde los primeros días del 2013 hasta el 5 de marzo de este mismo con su fallecimiento.

  8. A influência do Toyotismo na reestruturação do sistema capitalista: uma análise gramsciana - doi:10.5102/uri.v7i2.986

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Joao Paulo Santos Araujo

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available This article is concerned to analyse the Toyotist way of production in the post-Fordist era. The intention is to prove that the model, since its origins, has similar characteristics to those that originated the Fordism in the United States and was fundamental in the substitution of the latter after its collapse to the post-Fordist model. The study presents the influence of the model in the socio-cultural, political and economical aspects on the Japanese society and, then, the replication of its elements beyond the borders of Japan. Furthermore, the Toyotism is here presented as the model that restructured the capitalist system and kept it in the core and the basis of the flexibilisation in the post-Fordist era. For that, I am going to apply Gramsci’s theoretical framework in the discussion believing that the author’s preoccupation with the extension of the transformation within the working environment influences also the social, political and economical spheres of the society. The analysis made by the author on the Fordism in the United States is going to be used as the framework to this study to interpret the Toyotism and its consequences in these spheres. The scrutiny contains productive elements, changes and characteristics of the workers and the influence of theses changes in governments’ policies. The starting point is the analysis of the Fordism in the United State and the birth of a new accumulation system since this model is the predecessor and the basis of the Japanese Toyotism. Then, the decline of the model and the rigidity crises will be in the focus in order to present the Toyotism, the flexibilisation of the production and the changes that this model brought to the world’s society and productive system. Key words: Toyotism, Fordism, way of production, flexibilisation of the production

    André Barrinha

    2013-11-01

    Full Text Available Irremediavelmente ligados pela proximidade dos respetivos objetos de estudo, Estudos de Segurança e Estudos da Paz e dos Conflitos constituíram-se e evoluíram ao longo da Guerra Fria como disciplinas antagónicas. Essa divisão operou-se sobretudo na Europa, onde Galtung e seus discípulos encaminharam o estudo das questões da guerra e da paz para uma agenda claramente normativa e crítica, enquanto o estudo das questões de segurança se centrava numa abordagem orientada para o policy-making. Como é defendido neste artigo, o final do conflito bipolar correspondeu, até certo ponto, a uma inversão de papéis, com os Estudos da Paz e dos Conflitos acomodados a um empirismo desprovido de normatividade e os Estudos de Segurança, pelo menos na Europa, a abrirem-se a novas abordagens de cariz mais crítico. É aqui sugerido que esta inversão contém, em si, importantes lições para os Estudos da Paz e da Segurança, nomeadamente sobre a centralidade da teoria na definição de uma nova agenda crítica que permita uma aproximação entre as duas disciplinas.

    Full Text Available Nowadays, foreign trade deserves more attention from academic workers due to its importance in the international economy. In trying to optimize the benefits of the foreign trade, the State often interferes to stimulate the national industry.\tOne of the actions of State interference is the export promotion, which focus on activities of commercial promotion. In recent years, its importance grew quickly and expressively. However, those interferences bring the concern of other States and international organizations once they distort the international free trade. Nevertheless, export promotion still may be questioned, mainly by the Subsidies Agreement, which defines at the World Trade Organization the limits of the States interferences for supporting its national industry.

    Full Text Available A ligação entre ‘construção da paz’ (peacebuilding e desenvolvimento é actualmente aceite de forma mais ou menos consensual em termos conceptuais. Não há desenvolvimento sem paz, e a paz precisa de desenvolvimento para se tornar sustentável. No entanto, a definição conceptual de ambos os termos teve uma evolução paralela que só recentemente começou a ser tratada de forma interligada. Acresce ainda que, para além da evolução conceptual dos termos, a sua aplicação, em termos de actores, políticas e estratégias também tem sido desenhada e implementada de forma autónoma. Apesar de actualmente se poder identificar uma tendência para se apresentarem os conceitos de forma interligada, as práticas ainda têm um longo caminho para se ajustarem a essa nova realidade conceptual.

    O presente trabalho analisa o discurso jornalístico da mídia impressa nacional em relação à migração, demonstrando a influência da globalização no crescente fluxo migratório forçado. No desenvolver deste artigo, tenta-se mostrar que o discurso dos mass media é resultado do pensamento da elite dominante que contribui na criação de estereótipos pejorativos acerca do migrante, sobretudo quando pertence ao grupo dos excluídos pelo sistema hegemônico vigente.

    Full Text Available Definida como a nova prioridade da ONU em 1992, a consolidação da paz procurou responder ao desafio de um número crescente de guerras civis particularmente violentas e tornou-se, desde então, numa das mais visíveis e exigentes áreas de atuação da organização. O empenho na promoção ativa da resolução desses conflitos foi, no entanto, revelando graves debilidades e não impediu evidentes fracassos. Nestas duas décadas, o chamado paradigma da paz liberal tem vindo a sofrer críticas contundentes e é atualmente alvo de um ceticismo generalizado. Este artigo explora algumas dessas críticas apontadas ao modelo vigente, argumentando que, apesar de certas alterações ao conceito e prática da consolidação da paz, os problemas mais acutilantes estão ainda por resolver, e as mudanças até agora introduzidas não chegam a pôr em causa os pressupostos culturais e ideológicos, assim como os interesses práticos do Norte Global, que subjazem à promoção da paz na periferia.

    Full Text Available New strategies for social development imply on the regulation of policies, in which human security is a key element, after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.\tThe impact of the terrorist attacks clearly shows the necessity of new procedures for the world security, once there are no barriers to the transit of persons and products. The international coalitions should be implemented to generate pro-active actions and agreements among the National States to avoid the aggression between one State to the other, and the creation of terrorist groups, “mafias”, which promote criminality, drug and weapon traffic, prostitution, money laundry and extortion. These underground imperialist powers need to be eliminated through international jurisdiction norms and the establishment of democratic regimes targeted to the stabilization of a new political and economic world order.

    Differentiating acute bacterial sinusitis from viral upper respiratory tract infection (URI) is challenging; 20% to 40% of children diagnosed with acute sinusitis based on clinical criteria likely have an uncomplicated URI. The objective of this study was to determine which signs and symptoms could be used to identify the subgroup of children who meet current clinical criteria for sinusitis but who nevertheless have a viral URI. We obtained sinus radiographs in consecutive children meeting a priori clinical criteria for acute sinusitis. We considered the subgroup of children with completely normal sinus radiographs to have an uncomplicated URI despite meeting the clinical diagnostic criteria for sinusitis. We examined the utility of signs and symptoms in identifying children with URI. Of 258 children enrolled, 54 (20.9%) children had completely normal radiographs. The absence of green nasal discharge, the absence of disturbed sleep and mild symptoms were associated with a diagnosis of URI. No physical exam findings were particularly helpful in distinguishing between children with normal versus abnormal radiographs. Among children meeting current criteria for the diagnosis of acute sinusitis, those with mild symptoms are significantly more likely to have a URI than those with severe symptoms. In addition to assessing overall severity of symptoms, practitioners should ask about sleep disturbance and green nasal discharge when assessing children with suspected sinusitis; their absence favors a diagnosis of URI.

    We have previously reported an increase in salivary cortisol in a cohort of 4-year-old children transitioning to primary school. We hypothesised that increased cortisol in response to this acute naturalistic stress in early development may be immunostimulatory and associated with positive health outcomes. We tested this hypothesis by measuring upper respiratory tract infection (URI) across the first 6 months of school, in relation to salivary cortisol at the end of the second week following school transition Seventy children supplied morning and evening saliva samples for cortisol assay. Children were psychologically assessed for temperament and behavioural adaptation. Symptoms of URI were recorded in diary form, and variables relating to URI occurrence, duration and severity were assessed. Children with higher evening cortisol at school transition experienced significantly fewer episodes of URI over the following 6 months. Diurnal cortisol change was negatively correlated with number of illnesses across the 6 months, indicating an association between a greater decline in cortisol across the day and a greater number of colds. URI severity was associated with the greatest resistance to URI infection in children who were less socially isolated and who had a smaller diurnal change in cortisol across the day. Our results showing that higher cortisol is associated with lower URI may be explained by proposing that increased cortisol in response to the naturalistic stress of school transition may prime the immune system to develop resistance to URI at this critical stage of a child's development.

    The aims of this research were to report characteristics of rescued cats at a secondary emergency animal shelter in Fukushima prefecture, Japan, and evaluate how adoptability, stress level, upper respiratory infection (URI) syndrome incidence, and URI pathogen prevalence were associated with the cat's shelter intake source and shelter characteristics. All cats admitted to the Miharu shelter, Fukushima Prefecture from 2012 to 2014 were included in the study. The results demonstrate that in situ corticosteroid and antibiotic use were associated with cats subsequently developing upper respiratory infections (URI). Disease and cat behavior were unassociated with adoption. Cats in group housing had lower stress metrics than cats individually housed. Prevalences of URI pathogens exceeded 80%, but symptomatic cats were uncommon. Environmental enrichment and stress reduction strategies are important in controlling URI and reducing the need for corticosteroids and antibiotics in shelters. Preemptive protocols are important in preventing shelter admission of cats during disasters. Copyright © 2017 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Full Text Available Many countries around the world have been stricken by large intensity natural phenomena whose consequences bring enormous human and material losses. Other countries have also started to suffer consequences of predatory environmental explorations and environmental transformations more intensely. Developing countries that have been through hard economic difficulties or situations of violent conflicts, apart from suffering with a large amount of deaths, poverty, and bad life conditions, have most of its infra-structure and production chains devastated. As a result, the need for reconstruction of these hard hit countries and the environmental issues have been important topics of discussion in international relations, with the rise of important concepts like sustainable development and global environmental security.

    Full Text Available O ensaio pretende fazer uma reflexão sobre o tratamento dado pelo governo brasileiro aos haitianos que tem entrado de maneira numericamente mais intensa no Brasil, especialmente após o terremoto que acometeu aquele país em janeiro de 2010. A proposta é, a partir de uma comparação com medidas tomadas pelo governo da República Dominicana, país emergente para o qual historicamente se dirigiu o maior contingente de migrantes haitianos, observar possíveis similaridades e divergências entre o posicionamento de ambos os governos ao lidar com esses grupos migratórios que se dirigem para seus respectivos países. A discussão dar-se-á e torno da seguinte questão: existe, de fato, uma diferença muito grande entre a anunciada receptividade dos haitianos por parte do Governo brasileiro e a histórica xenofobia sofrida por esses nacionais na República Dominicana? Observar-se-á que a receptividade de haitianos por parte do Governo brasileiro é muito mais complexa do que aparenta e envolve fatores diversos como o posicionamento político deste país no cenário internacional bem como seu histórico de relacionar-se de maneira diferente com diversos grupos migratórios presentes no país.

    Full Text Available O presente artigo descreve e analiza as posições da diplomacia brasileira frente às grandes tragédias humanitárias que afetaram o mundo no pós guerra fria. Neste sentido se concentra no conteúdo das partipações brasileiras no Conselho de Segurança das Nações Unidas durante este período historico que presenciou grandes desafios para o sistema de segurança como as crises da Iugoslavia, Timor Leste, Kosovo e mais recentemente a ousada decisão sobre Darfur en 2005. Sem pretender una análise completa uma vez que se trata de problemas ainda em pleno debate na arena internacional o artigo dita algumas pautas para futura acompanhamento analitico. Conclui-se que o Brasil vem avançando em relação a uma politica para o sistema de segurança em geral mas lhe falta uma resposta aos graves conflitos étnico-politicos que proliferaram no pós guerra fria, que de resto a comunidade interancional como um todo não dispõe.

Durante éste período se mostrará los argumentos jurídicos que Uruguay utilizó para contrarrestar la presentación Argentina. Esta etapa marca el final del proceso antes del dictado del fallo definitivo que dará fin o un nuevo comienzo al conflicto.

    Full Text Available Desde seu processo de criação ao final da Segunda Guerra Mundial, quando as sementes da rivalidade bipolar da Guerra Fria estavam sendo plantadas, a ONU tem sido interpretada como um organismo internacional de cunho político, dotado de personalidade jurídica e com capacidade de efetiva manutenção da paz e da segurança internacionais por meio de critérios objetivos. Permeada de idealismo, a ONU tem sido produto e causa, simultaneamente, dos sonhos e aspirações comuns por um organismo que possa domar a força bruta da guerra, reduzir as disparidades entre Nações e promover igualdade e solidariedade cooperativa internacional. A ONU, contudo, não se restringe a ser apenas um centro harmônico em prol de valores, práticas e posturas ditas universais. De forma mais realista, a ONU, por meio do Conselho de Segurança está imbuída de assimetrias e precariedades que são típicas e inerentes às relações interestatais com seu jogo de poder e relações de força. O propósito deste artigo é discutir a pertinência de tais análises, fornecendo uma revisão crítica, tendo como referência principal os estudos da ordem mundial e a ONU como subproduto dela.

El presidente Chávez pretende con esta estrategia desmontar la razón del mercado que predomina en la concepción integracionista de los gobiernos latinoamericanos y en los espacios públicos de integración, revelando sus contribuciones nefastas para el aumento de los índices de pobreza y exclusión social en la región, en contradicción al desarrollo social prometido por la derecha promotora del neoliberalismo. Se concluye que en la nueva etapa del proceso de transformación y cambio continúo que está experimentando el continente en las primeras décadas del siglo XXI, el gobierno de Chávez esta operacionalizando este enfoque a través de alianzas estratégicas con gobiernos que comparten en su diplomacia presidencial elementos ideológicos y políticos similares para la instauración del nuevo socialismo del siglo XXI.

    Full Text Available Os elementos conceituais da cooperação econômica são elencados no presente estudo, mostrando a relação política bilateral assignada entre Brasil e Bolívia, especialmente no que tange ao gás bolivianos e a atuação de Petrobrás. O conceito de soberania é colocado sob júdice no âmbito do acordo de cooperação firmado com a Bolívia, e a alegação da necessidade de privatização do gás, em virtude de novos parâmetros governamentais sob o Governo de Evo Morales, e as pressões dos movimentos indígenas. As questões jurídicas e econômicas imbricadas na órbita da cooperação e integração são analisadas, mesmo que a opinião pública e a mídia se voltem contra os dispositivos legais. Nesse contexto, compreende-se que os acordos internacionais sobre as políticas comerciais são processos de cooperação econômica e não de integração como alguns estudiosos apregoam. Pode até ser considerado como uma abertura que favoreça a integração, mas não há supressão de qualquer barreira discriminatória. No caso do Brasil com a Bolívia, ocorreu um processo de cooperação econômica internacional, visto que se trata de acordo que prevê benefícios mútuos e não prevê qualquer uma das fases da integração econômica. O recorte do presente manuscrito abrange o direito processual no que se refere aos mecanismos para a concretização da cooperação jurídica no âmbito da organização judiciária, forma de operacionalização, eficácia dos dispositivos que regulam o procedimento e interpretação atribuída a normas relacionadas à temática.

    Full Text Available O objetivo do presente artigo consiste em contribuir para o aumento do conhecimento acerca de uma região do mundo remota, mas de extrema importância no contexto geopolítico e económico da atualidade: a Ásia Central. O argumento central é o de que as potências/agrupamentos externos (a União Europeia e a Rússia demonstram um interesse de caráter fundamentalmente económico (a busca de recursos energéticos na região, perseguindo políticas de natureza predominantemente realista face a esta. Em alternativa à observação participante e não participante, técnicas de difícil aplicação ao presente objeto de estudo, recorreu-se à entrevista semiestruturada. A pesquisa de campo foi efetuada, através de entrevistas realizadas fundamentalmente na Ásia Central. Convictos de que o comportamento dos Estados, o poder ou a influência não são suscetíveis de se traduzir em realidades tangíveis ou fórmulas matemáticas, assumimos que o recurso ao método qualitativo, através da análise hermenêutica, é, indiscutivelmente, a metodologia em que assenta a presente investigação.

    Full Text Available O propósito deste estudo é compreender, avaliar e propor novas interpretações sobre o fenômeno da migração internacional, em geral, e da migração latino-americana, em particular, a partir de evidencia documental recente. Ao analisar especificamente o caso das tendências migratórias na América Latina e Caribe é bastante claro que o fenômeno se transformou em tema de grande relevância na agenda hemisférica e global. Segundo estimativas recentes, aproximadamente 40 milhões de latino-americanos e caribenhos moram fora dos seus paises de origem. Outrossim, existem boas razões para prever que a migração internacional, em geral, e a migração latino-americana e caribenha, em particular, continuarão sendo fenômenos importantes nas relações internacionais nas próximas décadas. Este expressivo fluxo migratório no sentido Sul-Norte é impulsionado por dois importantes conjuntos de motivos. De um lado, as profundas diferenças econômicas internacionais e as agudas insuficiências estruturais dos países em desenvolvimento favorecem a opção de procurar novos horizontes em outros países, regiões e continentes. De outro, é cada vez mais evidente que os países capitalistas avançados – porém demograficamente envelhecidos – precisam de uma força de trabalho jovem, qualificada e certamente estrangeira, inclusive para manter seus altos padrões de consumo e renda. Portanto, trata-se de alcançar um novo equilíbrio na procura e demanda de força de trabalho, no contexto geral do processo de globalização.

    Full Text Available Os objetivos deste artigo são apontar falhas e limitações nas visões predominantes sobre as relações entre as grandes potências europeias entre 1713 e 1815 e questionar os legados dos principais eventos político-sociais ocorridos nesse momento para as relações internacionais. Argumenta-se inicialmente que, de 1713 a 1789, houve grandes potências que operaram de acordo com objetivos relacionados à conquista de hegemonia, não à busca do equilíbrio de poder, e que a falha na conquista da hegemonia não necessariamente nega a existência de impulsos hegemônicos. Desenvolve-se que, no momento posterior a 1789, em vez de uma força nova e independente influenciando o curso dos eventos, o nacionalismo foi apenas marginalmente influente e operou predominantemente como um instrumento de política oficial.

  11. Facebook, stress, and incidence of upper respiratory infection in undergraduate college students.

    Having a large social network is generally beneficial to health. However, it is unclear how Internet-based social networks might influence health. Chronic stress can have negative health consequences, and some data suggest that Facebook could be a new source of psychological stress. Thus, we examined undergraduate college student perceptions of Facebook use and incidence of upper respiratory infections (URIs). We hypothesized that subjects with more diverse networks (i.e., more friends on Facebook) would have fewer URIs than their less diverse counterparts; that subjects reporting Facebook-induced stress would be more susceptible to URIs; and that subjects with more diverse networks who report Facebook-induced stress would be less susceptible to URIs than subjects with less diverse social networks who reported Facebook-induced stress. In this prospective study, healthy college students completed online questionnaires that assessed use and perceptions of Facebook and technology, and then were interviewed weekly for 10 weeks to track incidence of URI. URI episodes were defined by a symptom-based criterion. The social network size was significantly related to the rate of URI, such that, the larger the social network, the greater the incidence rate of URI. Most (85.7 percent) respondents experienced some degree of Facebook-induced stress. The effects of Facebook-induced stress on incidence of URI varied across the social network size, such that, the impact of stress on the URI incidence rate increased with the size of the social network. These results are largely in contrast to our hypotheses, but clearly suggest an association between Facebook use, psychological stress, and health.

    Observational studies identified associations between vitamin D insufficiency (serum 25(OH)D vitamin D3 supplementation reduces URI burden in vitamin D-insufficient swimmers. Fifty-five competitive adolescent swimmers with vitamin D insufficiency were randomized to receive vitamin D3 (2,000IU·d-1) or placebo for 12 winter weeks. A URI symptom questionnaire was completed weekly. Serum 25(OH)D concentrations were measured by radio-immunoassay before and after supplementation. We used linear regression to examine the relation between the change in 25(OH)D concentrations during the trial, and the duration and severity of URIs. There were no between-group differences in the frequency, severity, or duration of URIs. Exploratory analyses revealed that in the placebo group only, the change in 25(OH)D concentrations during the trial was highly associated with the duration of URIs (r = -0.90,p Vitamin D3 supplementation in adolescent swimmers with vitamin D insufficiency did not reduce URI burden. However, larger decreases in serum 25(OH)D concentrations were associated with significantly longer and more severe URI episodes.

    To assess whether vitamin A deficiency alters the recovery of total respiratory resistance (TRR) following acute upper respiratory tract infection (URI). This is a case control study of children, age 4-6 years and grouped as: URI, (n = 74), URI and wheezing, (URI-wheezing, n = 52), and healthy controls (n = 51). Vitamin A and total respiratory resistance (TRR) were assessed using the modified relative dose response (MRDR) and forced oscillometry, respectively. Children with URI and URI-wheezing had lower retinol, 32.4 ± 13.12 and 18.3 ± 6.83 µg/dl respectively, compared to controls, 56.9 ± 29.82 µg/dl (ANOVA, P 0.06. In the URI-wheezing group, TRR declined independently of retinol and MRDR. Vitamin A contributes to preservation of airway function during and in recovery after upper respiratory infection in children. Copyright © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    We sought to understand how polymicrobial colonization varies during health, viral upper respiratory infection (URI) and acute upper respiratory bacterial infection to understand differences in infection-prone vs. non-prone patients. Nasopharyngeal (NP) samples were collected from 74 acute otitis media (AOM) infection-prone and 754 non-prone children during 2094 healthy visits, 673 viral URI visits and 631 AOM visits. Three otopathogens Streptococcus pneumoniae (Spn), Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi), and Moraxella catarrhalis (Mcat) were identified by culture. NP colonization rates of multiple otopathogens during health were significantly lower than during viral URI, and during URI they were lower than at onset of upper respiratory bacterial infection in both AOM infection-prone and non-prone children. AOM infection-prone children had higher polymicrobial colonization rates than non-prone children during health, viral URI and AOM. Polymicrobial colonization rates of AOM infection-prone children during health were equivalent to that of non-prone children during viral URI, and during viral URI were equivalent to that of non-prone during AOM infection. Spn colonization was positively associated with NTHi and Mcat colonization during health, but negatively during AOM infection. The infection-prone patients more frequently have multiple potential bacterial pathogens in the NP than the non-prone patients. Polymicrobial interaction in the NP differs during health and at onset of infection. Copyright © 2017 The British Infection Association. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Full Text Available Acute otitis media (OM is a common disease which often develops through complex interactions between the host, the pathogen and environmental factors. We studied single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs of genes involved in innate and adaptive immunity, and other host and environmental factors for their role in OM.Using Sequenom Massarray platform, 21 SNPs were studied in 653 children from prospective (n = 202 and retrospective (n = 451 cohorts. Data were analyzed for the relationship between SNPs and upper respiratory infection (URI frequency, risk of acute OM during URI episodes, and proneness to recurrent OM.Increased risk for OM proneness was associated with CX3CR1 (Thr280Met SNP and with a jointly interactive group of IL-10 (-1082 SNP, IL-1β (-511 wild type genotype and white race. Family history of OM proneness independently increased the risk for frequent URIs, OM occurrence during URI, and OM proneness. Additionally, IL-1β (-31 SNP was associated with increased risk for frequent URIs, but IL-10 (-592, IL-1β (-511, IL-5 (-746 and IL-8 (-251 SNPs were associated with decreased risk of URI.IL-1β (-31, CX3CR1 (Thr280Met, IL-10 (-1082 and IL-1β (-511 SNPs were associated with increased risk for frequent URIs or OM proneness.

    College students are susceptible to upper respiratory infections (URI) due to inadequate sleep, stress and close living quarters. Certain probiotic strains modulate immune function and may improve health-related quality of life (HRQL) during URI. The present study recruited apparently healthy college students and assessed the effect of probiotics on HRQL outcomes (i.e. self-reported duration, symptom severity and functional impairment of URI) in those who developed URI. Missed school and work days due to URI were also considered. Subjects (n 231) were apparently healthy college students living on campus in residence halls at the Framingham State University (Framingham, MA, USA), and were randomised to receive placebo (n 117) or probiotic-containing powder (daily dose of minimum 1 billion colony-forming units of each Lactobacillus rhamnosus LGG® (LGG®) and Bifidobacterium animalis ssp. lactis BB-12® (BB-12®); n 114) for 12 weeks. Subjects completed The Wisconsin Upper Respiratory Symptom Survey-21 to assess HRQL during URI. The final analyses included 198 subjects (placebo, n 97 and probiotics, n 101). The median duration of URI was significantly shorter by 2 d and median severity score was significantly lower by 34% with probiotics v. placebo (P,0·001), indicating a higher HRQL during URI. Number of missed work days was not different between groups (P=0·429); however, the probiotics group missed significantly fewer school days (mean difference = 0·2 d) compared to the placebo group (P=0·002). LGG® and BB-12® may be beneficial among college students with URI for mitigating decrements in HRQL. More research is warranted regarding mechanisms of action associated with these findings and the cost-benefit of prophylactic supplementation.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Inappropriate antibiotic use promotes resistance. Antibiotics are generally not indicated for upper respiratory infections (URIs. Our objectives were to describe patterns of URI treatment and to identify patient and provider factors associated with antibiotic use for URIs. Methods This study was a cross-sectional analysis of medical and pharmacy claims data from the Pennsylvania Medicaid fee-for-service program database. We identified Pennsylvania Medicaid recipients with a URI office visit over a one-year period. Our outcome variable was antibiotic use within seven days after the URI visit. Study variables included URI type and presence of concurrent acute illnesses and chronic conditions. We considered the associations of each study variable with antibiotic use in a logistic regression model, stratifying by age group and adjusting for confounders. Results Among 69,936 recipients with URI, 35,786 (51.2% received an antibiotic. In all age groups, acute sinusitis, chronic sinusitis, otitis, URI type and season were associated with antibiotic use. Except for the oldest group, physician specialty and streptococcal pharyngitis were associated with antibiotic use. History of chronic conditions was not associated with antibiotic use in any age group. In all age groups, concurrent acute illnesses and history of chronic conditions had only had fair to poor ability to distinguish patients who received an antibiotic from patients who did not. Conclusion Antibiotic prevalence for URIs was high, indicating that potentially inappropriate antibiotic utilization is occurring. Our data suggest that demographic and clinical factors are associated with antibiotic use, but additional reasons remain unexplained. Insight regarding reasons for antibiotic prescribing is needed to develop interventions to address the growing problem of antibiotic resistance.

  7. Therapeutic options for acute cough due to upper respiratory infections in children.

    2012-02-01

    Cough due to upper respiratory tract infections (URIs) is one of the most frequent complaints encountered by pediatric health-care providers, and one of the most disruptive symptoms for children and families. Despite the frequency of URIs, there is limited evidence to support the few therapeutic agents currently available in the United States (US) to treat acute cough due to URI. Published, well-designed, contemporary research supporting the efficacy of narcotics (codeine, hydrocodone) and US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved over-the-counter (OTC) oral antitussives and expectorants (dextromethorphan, diphenhydramine, chlophedianol, and guaifenesin) is absent for URI-associated pediatric cough. Alternatively, honey and topically applied vapor rubs may be effective antitussives.

    Vitamin D has been shown to be an important immune system regulator. Vitamin D insufficiency during winter may cause increased susceptibility to upper respiratory tract infections (URIs). To determine whether vitamin D supplementation during the winter season prevents or decreases URI symptoms, 162 adults were randomized to receive 50 microg vitamin D3 (2000 IU) daily or matching placebo for 12 weeks. A bi-weekly questionnaire was used to record the incidence and severity of URI symptoms. There was no difference in the incidence of URIs between the vitamin D and placebo groups (48 URIs vs. 50 URIs, respectively, P=0.57). There was no difference in the duration or severity of URI symptoms between the vitamin D and placebo groups [5.4+/-4.8 days vs. 5.3+/-3.1 days, respectively, P=0.86 (95% CI for the difference in duration -1.8 to 2.1)]. The mean 25-hydroxyvitamin D level at baseline was similar in both groups (64.3+/-25.4 nmol/l in the vitamin D group; 63.0+/-25.8 nmol/l in the placebo group; n.s.). After 12 weeks, 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels increased significantly to 88.5+/-23.2 nmol/l in the vitamin D group, whereas there was no change in vitamin D levels in the placebo group. There was no benefit of vitamin D3 supplementation in decreasing the incidence or severity of symptomatic URIs during winter. Further studies are needed to determine the role of vitamin D in infection.

    Upper respiratory tract illnesses (URIs) are a major cause of morbidity among adults, with substantial direct and indirect costs to society, but their impact among university students has not been well described. We sought to assess the impact of URIs (colds and influenza-like illnesses [ILIs]) on the health, academic and work performance, and health care use of university students. This was a cohort study of college students at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities campus (Minneapolis-St. Paul), who were recruited during October 2002 and followed up from November 2002 through April 2003. All 42,000 registered students were invited via e-mail to participate. Baseline information was obtained in October 2002. Monthly follow-up information about colds or ILIs was obtained for the period of November 2002 through April 2003. Data were collected by use of Internet-based questionnaires. Of 4919 volunteers, 3249 completed all follow-up surveys. The mean age was 22.7 years; 68% of the volunteers were female. Ninety-one percent had > or = 1 URI (83% had > or = 1 cold, and 36.7% had > or = 1 ILI). These URIs caused 6023 bed-days, 4263 missed school days, 3175 missed work days, and 45,219 days of illness. Of the cohort, 22.2% had > or = 1 health care visit, and 15.8% used antibiotics to treat a URI; 27.8% did poorly on a test and 46.3% did poorly on a class assignment. ILIs versus colds had a much greater impact on all parameters (e.g., general health level was 55%-60% lower with ILI vs. no URI and 33%-39% lower for colds vs. no URI; P students. Enhanced efforts to prevent and control URIs, especially influenza vaccination, could improve the health and well-being of the 17 million college and university students in this country.

    Increased upper respiratory infection (URI) among children at the beginning of school year is well known to parents and pediatricians. However, this phenomenon is not well documented or characterized. Computerized datasets from a large health maintenance organization in Israel were used to calculate the weekly rates of URI among children 3-14 years old for the years 2007-2012. In addition, nasopharyngeal swabs were collected in 2010-2012 from children with URI symptoms and controls during school opening time. Swabs were tested by real-time polymerase chain reaction for the presence of respiratory viruses. Time-series analysis demonstrated a peak of URI in September each year. The peaks reached their height 2 weeks after school opening and returned to baseline within 4-7 weeks. The main 3 viruses detected both in URI patients and in healthy controls during the first weeks of school opening were rhinovirus, adenovirus and enterovirus. The detection rate of any respiratory virus, and of rhinovirus in particular, was significantly higher among cases than among controls (54% vs. 16%, P age and sex cases had 5.8 times more viral detection when compared with controls. Upper respiratory symptoms were significantly more prevalent among the virus-positive cases when compared with negative ones. Back-to-school illness consisting of URI has a distinct epidemiological pattern demonstrating a rapid rise peaking within 2 weeks of school opening and is associated predominantly with rhinovirus.

    2014-01-01

    Background Acute bacterial sinusitis (ABS) is a common complication of viral upper respiratory tract infections (URI). Clinical characteristics of URIs complicated by ABS in young children have not been well studied. Methods We identified ABS episodes in a prospective, longitudinal cohort study of 294 children (6 to 35 months of age at enrollment), who were followed-up for one year to capture all URI episodes and complications. At the initial URI visit seen by the study personnel (median day=4 from symptoms onset), nasopharyngeal samples were obtained for bacterial cultures and viral studies. Results Of 1295 documented URI episodes, 103 (8%) episodes (in 73 children) were complicated by ABS, 32 of which were concurrent with acute otitis media. The majority (72%) of ABS episodes were diagnosed based on persistent symptoms or a biphasic course. Average age at ABS diagnosis was 18.8±7.2 months; white children were more likely to have ABS episodes than blacks (p=0.01). Hispanic/Latino ethnicity (p<0.0001) was negatively associated, and adequate PCV-7 immunization status (p=0.001) appeared to increase the risk of ABS. Girls had more ABS episodes than boys (0.5±0.8 vs 0.3±0.6 episodes/year, respectively, p=0.03). Viruses were detected in 63% during the initial URI visit; rhinovirus detection was positively correlated with ABS risk (p=0.01). Bacterial cultures were positive in 82/83 (99%) available samples obtained at the initial URI visit; polymicrobial (56%), Moraxella catarrhalis (20%) and Streptococcus pneumoniae (10%) were the most common cultures. Presence of pathogenic bacteria overall and presence of M. catarrhalis during URI were positively correlated with the risk for ABS (p=0.04 for both). Conclusion ABS complicates 8% of URI in young children. Girls have more frequent ABS episodes than boys. Presence of rhinovirus and M. catarrhalis during URI are positively correlated with the risk for ABS complication. PMID:24717966

  13. The Use of a Shelter Software a to Track Frequency and Selected Risk Factors for Feline Upper Respiratory Infection

    2015-03-01

    Full Text Available Objective—Feline upper respiratory infection (URI is a common, multi-factorial infectious disease syndrome endemic to many animal shelters. Although a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in shelter cats, URI is seldom formally monitored in shelter cat populations. Without monitoring, effective control and prevention of this often endemic disease is difficult. We looked at an integrated case management software system a for animal care organizations, widely used in shelters across the United States. Shelter staff routinely enter information regarding individual animals and disease status, but do not commonly use the software system to track frequency of disease. The purpose of this study was to determine if the software system a can be used to track URI frequency and selected risk factors in a population, and to evaluate the quality and completeness of the data as currently collected in a shelter. Design (type of study—Descriptive Survey. Animals (or Sample—317 cats in an animal shelter. Procedures—Reports from the software system a containing data regarding daily inventory, daily intake, animal identification, location, age, vaccination status, URI diagnosis and URI duration were evaluated. The reports were compared to data collected manually by an observer (Ann Therese Kommedal to assess discrepancies, completeness, timeliness, availability and accuracy. Data were collected 6 days a week over a 4 week period. Results—Comparisons between the software system a reports and manually collected reports showed that 93% of inventory reports were complete and of these 99% were accurate. Fifty-two percent of the vaccination reports were complete, of which 97% were accurate. The accuracy of the software system’s age reports was 76%. Two-hundred and twenty-three cats were assigned a positive or negative URI diagnosis by the observer. The predictive value of the URI status in the software system a was below 60% both for positive and

    Olfactory deficits that develop after viral upper respiratory infection (URI) may have different effects on patient depression index compared to chronic sinusitis with olfactory loss. However, there have been no controlled trials to evaluate the different effects of chronic sinusitis and URI on depression index. Prospective study of 25 subjects in two groups. This study enrolled 25 participants who were diagnosed with post-URI olfactory loss as the study group and 25 patients with chronic sinusitis and olfactory loss as a control group. Control group participants were matched for age, sex, and degree of olfactory loss (threshold, discrimination, and identification [TDI]). We compared the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) scores of each group and analyzed the correlation between TDI and BDI. The mean BDI score of the post-URI group was significantly higher than that of the control group (14.52 ± 6.59 vs. 9.32 ± 5.23; P=.002). Age, sex, and TDI score did not affect BDI score in the post-URI olfactory loss group. However, BDI score in the sinusitis group was inversely correlated with TDI score (R=-0.423; P=.035), and the BDI score of female subjects (11.00 ± 5.13) was significantly higher than that of male subjects (5.00 ± 2.16; P = .047). Post-URI olfactory loss affected patient mood more severely than chronic sinusitis with a similar degree of olfactory loss. This influence was not affected by sex, age, or TDI score in the post-URI olfactory loss group. 3b. © 2014 The American Laryngological, Rhinological and Otological Society, Inc.

  8. Upper Respiratory Infections and Barotrauma Among Commercial Pilots.

    Health incapacitation is a serious threat to flight safety. Therefore, a study conducted 10 yr ago examined the incidents of ear-nose-throat (ENT) barotrauma and upper respiratory infection (URI) among commercial pilots and found that a large number continued to carry out their duties despite the risk of incapacitation. Now, 10 yr later, this new study examines if the attention to URIs has improved. This study was conducted at the Danish Aeromedical Centre over the course of 1 yr with 463 valid respondents to a questionnaire on URIs and ENT barotrauma. These respondents were compared to 940 respondents answering the same questionnaire 10 yr prior in the same setting. This study shows a significant increase in the number of pilots flying despite signs of an URI from 42.8 to 50.1% and in the number of pilots using decongestant medicine from 43.3 to 59.5%. The proportion of pilots experiencing one or more ENT barotraumas has also increased from 37.4 to 55.5% for barotitis media and from 19.5 to 27.9% for barosinusitis. Half of all pilots in this study fly despite signs of an URI. This is a significant increase and shows that after 10 yr an URI is still not considered a valid reason for reporting in sick despite international aeromedical recommendation. Based on these findings, the study recommends that awareness of the risk of flying with an URI be increased.Boel NM, Klokker M. Upper respiratory infections and barotrauma among commercial pilots.

    Prospective data on viral etiology and clinical characteristics of bronchiolitis and upper respiratory illness (URI) in infants are limited. This prospective cohort enrolled previously healthy term infants during inpatient or outpatient visits for acute URI or bronchiolitis during September to May 2004 to 2008. Illness severity was determined using an ordinal bronchiolitis severity score. Common respiratory viruses were identified by real-time reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction. Of 648 infants, 67% were enrolled during inpatient visits and 33% during outpatient visits. Seventy percent had bronchiolitis, 3% croup and 27% URI. Among infants with bronchiolitis, 76% had respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), 18% human rhinovirus (HRV), 10% influenza, 2% coronavirus, 3% human metapneumovirus and 1% parainfluenza virus. Among infants with croup, 39% had HRV, 28% parainfluenza virus, 28% RSV, 11% influenza, 6% coronavirus and none human metapneumovirus. Among infants with URI, 46% had HRV, 14% RSV, 12% influenza, 7% coronavirus, 6% parainfluenza virus and 4% human metapneumovirus. Individual viruses exhibited distinct seasonal, demographic and clinical expression. The most common infections among infants seeking care in unscheduled medical visits for URI or bronchiolitis were RSV and HRV. Demographic differences were observed between patients with different viruses, suggesting that host and viral factors play a role in phenotypic expression of viral illness.

  10. Association between serum vitamin D, retinol and zinc status, and acute respiratory infections in underweight and normal-weight children aged 6-24 months living in an urban slum in Bangladesh.

    We conducted a longitudinal assessment in 466 underweight and 446 normal-weight children aged 6-24 months living in the urban slum of Dhaka, Bangladesh to determine the association between vitamin D and other micronutrient status with upper respiratory tract infection (URI) and acute lower respiratory infection (ALRI). Incidence rate ratios of URI and ALRI were estimated using multivariable generalized estimating equations. Our results indicate that underweight children with insufficient and deficient vitamin D status were associated with 20% and 23-25% reduced risk of URI, respectively, compared to children with sufficient status. Underweight children, those with serum retinol deficiency were at 1·8 [95% confidence interval (CI) 1·4-2·4] times higher risk of ALRI than those with retinol sufficiency. In normal-weight children there were no significant differences between different vitamin D status and the incidence of URI and ALRI. However, normal-weight children with zinc insufficiency and those that were serum retinol deficient had 1·2 (95% CI 1·0-1·5) times higher risk of URI and 1·9 (95% CI 1·4-2·6) times higher risk of ALRI, respectively. Thus, our results should encourage efforts to increase the intake of retinol-enriched food or supplementation in this population. However, the mechanisms through which vitamin D exerts beneficial effects on the incidence of childhood respiratory tract infection still needs further research.

    OBJECTIVE: To quantify the available evidence for the hypothesis that reduced resistance caused by psychological stress may influence the development of clinical disease in those exposed to an infectious agent. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of 27 prospective studies...... examining the association between psychological stress and subsequent upper respiratory infection (URI). RESULTS: The results revealed a significant overall main effect of psychological stress on the risk of developing URI (effect size correlation coefficient, 0.21; 95% confidence interval, 0.......15-0.27). Further analyses showed that effect sizes for the association did not vary according to type of stress, how URI was assessed, or whether the studies had controlled for preexposure. CONCLUSIONS: The meta-analytical findings confirmed the hypothesis that psychological stress is associated with increased...

    To implement multifaceted interventions to promote rational use of antibiotics for out-patients with upper respiratory tract infection (URI) and acute diarrhea. The present study was conducted at ambulatory care facility for patients under Social Security Healthcare Benefit Scheme and Universal Health Coverage Scheme of Siriraj Hospital from January to April 2012. Multifaceted interventions were: Training responsible healthcare personnel on rational use of antibiotics, Clinical practice guidelines, Preprinted medical record forms for patients, Throat swab or stool culture to be taken from the patients (if responsible physicians needed these); and provision of brochures containing causes, necessity and harm of antibiotics for URI and acute diarrhea to patients as well as their relatives while waiting for receiving care. Pre-printed medical records were collected every day. Each patient was called on day 3 after receiving care by an investigator to determine clinical responses. There were 1,241 episodes of URI and 210 episodes of acute diarrhea during the study period. Rates of antibiotic prescriptions were 13.0% for URI and 19.1% for acute diarrhea. Throat swab cultures recovered group A beta-hemolytic streptococci in 3.8% of URI patients and non-typhoidal Salmonella spp. in 14.6% of acute diarrhea patients. Clinical responses of the patients on day 3 after receiving care revealed that more than 97% of the patients who received antibiotics and who did not receive antibiotics were cured or improved. Multifaceted interventions are very effective for promoting rational use of antibiotics for out-patients with URI and acute diarrhea at Siriraj Hospital.

    Full Text Available In this study, a prototype service to provide data from Web Feature Service (WFS as linked data is implemented. At first, persistent and unique Uniform Resource Identifiers (URI are created to all spatial objects in the dataset. The objects are available from those URIs in Resource Description Framework (RDF data format. Next, a Web Ontology Language (OWL ontology is created to describe the dataset information content using the Open Geospatial Consortium’s (OGC GeoSPARQL vocabulary. The existing data model is modified in order to take into account the linked data principles. The implemented service produces an HTTP response dynamically. The data for the response is first fetched from existing WFS. Then the Geographic Markup Language (GML format output of the WFS is transformed on-the-fly to the RDF format. Content Negotiation is used to serve the data in different RDF serialization formats. This solution facilitates the use of a dataset in different applications without replicating the whole dataset. In addition, individual spatial objects in the dataset can be referred with URIs. Furthermore, the needed information content of the objects can be easily extracted from the RDF serializations available from those URIs. A solution for linking data objects to the dataset URI is also introduced by using the Vocabulary of Interlinked Datasets (VoID. The dataset is divided to the subsets and each subset is given its persistent and unique URI. This enables the whole dataset to be explored with a web browser and all individual objects to be indexed by search engines.

    After studying two rural communities with varing endemicity of urinary schistosomiasis by total cross-sectional population survey, a stratified sample was obtained using defined criteria. Plain X-ray abdomen and intravenous pyelogram were carried out on the sample. Findings on plain X-ray of the abdomen, using the usual parameters of psoas and kidney shadows in the Nigerian, indicate that the two communities studied are similar but urinary calculi and urinary tract distortion are significantly more prominent in the community with the higher endemicity of urinary schistosomiasis.

    Full Text Available The neutron activation by γ-spectrometry measurement was used to follow hydrometallurgical processes of a realgar ore sample from Vareš area, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Realgar ore disintegration has been performed by dissolving in either sodium hydroxide or sodium sulphide. Realgar ore disintegration by dissolving with sodium hydroxide is not suitable for neutron activation processes. On the other hand, realgar ore disintegration by dissolving with sodium sulphide is suitable and useful for neutron activation processes. It has been found that As2O3 can be successfully separated in an amount of 85 ± 5%.

    The present work is aimed to investigate the corrosion resistance of rare earth protective coatings deposited by spontaneous deposition on AA6061 aluminum alloy substrates. Coatings were deposited from water-based Ce(NO{sub 3}){sub 3} and La(NO{sub 3}){sub 3} solutions by varing parameters such as rare earth solution concentration, bath temperature and immersion time. The values of the Tafel slopes indicate that the cathodic process is favored by concentration polarization rather than activation polarization. Chemical and morphological characterizations of the surface before and after electrochemical evaluations were performed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy. (Author)

    Upper respiratory infections (URI) and their complications are a major healthcare burden for pediatric populations. Although the microbiology of the nasopharynx is an important determinant of the complications of URI, little is known of the nasopharyngeal (NP) microbiota of children, the factors that affect its composition, and its precise relationship with URI. Healthy children (n = 47) aged 49-84 months from a prospective cohort study based in Wisconsin, USA, were examined. Demographic and clinical data and NP swab samples were obtained from participants upon entry to the study. All NP samples were profiled for bacterial microbiota using a phylogenetic microarray, and these data were related to demographic characteristics and upper respiratory health outcomes. The composition of the NP bacterial community of children was significantly related prior to the history of acute sinusitis (R (2) = 0.070, P microbiota diversity (P ≤ 0.05). These preliminary data suggest that previous history of acute sinusitis influences the composition of the NP microbiota, characterized by a depletion in relative abundance of specific taxa. Diminished diversity was associated with more frequent URIs.

    Background Prospective data on viral etiology and clinical characteristics of bronchiolitis and upper respiratory illness in infants is limited. Methods This prospective cohort enrolled previously healthy term infants during inpatient or outpatient visits for acute upper respiratory illness (URI) or bronchiolitis during September - May 2004–2008. Illness severity was determined using an ordinal bronchiolitis severity score. Common respiratory viruses were identified by real-time RT-PCR. Results Of 648 infants, 67% were enrolled during inpatient visits and 33% during outpatient visits. Seventy percent had bronchiolitis, 3% croup, and 27% URI. Among infants with bronchiolitis, 76% had RSV, 18% HRV, 10% influenza, 2% coronavirus, 3% HMPV, and 1% PIV. Among infants with croup, 39% had HRV, 28% PIV, 28% RSV, 11% influenza, 6% coronavirus, and none HMPV. Among infants with URI, 46% had HRV, 14% RSV, 12% influenza, 7% coronavirus, 6% PIV, and 4% HMPV. Individual viruses exhibited distinct seasonal, demographic, and clinical expression. Conclusions The most common infections among infants seeking care in unscheduled medical visits for URI or bronchiolitis were RSV and HRV. Demographic differences were observed between patients with different viruses, suggesting that host and viral factors play a role in phenotypic expression of viral illness. PMID:23694832

    To determine whether an antihistamine-decongestant combination (ADC) is superior to placebo in temporarily relieving symptoms of upper respiratory tract infection (URI) in preschool children. Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Four pediatric offices in the Seattle, Wash, area. Children 6 months through 5 years of age with a URI of less than 7 days' duration. Children were randomly assigned to receive an ADC (brompheniramine maleate-phenylpropanolamine hydrochloride) or placebo as needed for URI symptoms. Two hours after each dose of study medication, changes in the child's runny nose, nasal congestion, cough, and sleep status were assessed by means of a standardized questionnaire. A total of 175 responses were recorded for 59 patients. There were no statistically significant differences in symptom improvement between the ADC and the placebo group (runny nose, p = 0.48; nasal congestion, p = 0.94; cough, p = 0.66). However, the proportion of children asleep 2 hours after receiving the ADC was significantly higher than the proportion receiving placebo (46.6% vs 26.5%; p = 0.01). Results were unchanged after control for the correlated nature of repeated responses, age, symptom duration, use of acetaminophen, time that the medication was given, and parental desire for medication. The ADC was equivalent to placebo in providing temporary relief of URI symptoms in preschool children. However, the ADC did have significantly greater sedative effects than did placebo.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Early diagnosis of Osteoarthritis (OA is essential for preventing further cartilage destruction and decreasing severe complications. The aims of this study are to explore the relationship between OA pathological grades and quantitative acoustic parameters and to provide more objective criteria for ultrasonic microscopic evaluation of the OA cartilage. Methods Articular cartilage samples were prepared from rabbit knees and scanned using ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM. Three quantitative parameters, including the roughness index of the cartilage surface (URI, the reflection coefficients from the cartilage surface (R and from the cartilage-bone interface (Rbone were extracted. The osteoarthritis grades of these cartilage samples were qualitatively assessed by histology according to the grading standards of International Osteoarthritis Institute (OARSI. The relationship between these quantitative parameters and the osteoarthritis grades was explored. Results The results showed that URI increased with the OA grade. URI of the normal cartilage samples was significantly lower than the one of the OA cartilage samples. There was no significant difference in URI between the grade 1 cartilage samples and the grade 2 cartilage samples. The reflection coefficient of the cartilage surface reduced significantly with the development of OA (p Conclusion High frequency ultrasound measurements can reflect the changes in the surface roughness index and the ultrasound reflection coefficients of the cartilage samples with different OA grades. This study may provide useful information for the quantitative ultrasonic diagnosis of early OA.

    Full Text Available The Great East Japan Earthquakes of March 11, 2011 caused immense harm to the community and subsequent nuclear accident in Fukushima Prefecture extended the damage. Local residents were forced to evacuated without pets and the left behind animals were rescued from the restricted zone one month later. Unplanned animal rescue and unregulated sheltering caused secondary damage to animals such as disease epidemics at impounded animal shelter. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the incidence of upper respiratory infection (URI and diarrhea in cats at the first response animal shelter in Fukushima, and investigate factors affecting the duration of disease and determinants of treatments performed. Eighty percent and 59% of impounded cats developed URI, 71% and 54% of cats developed diarrhea, and 91% and 83% of cats had at least one disease in 2011 and 2012, respectively. Uses of multiple drug administration (more than five drugs was associated with prolonged URI and diarrhea. Multiple antibiotics, antihistamines, interferon, and steroids were associated with relapse of and prolonged URI. Developing a standardized treatment protocol for commonly observed diseases at Japanese animal shelters to prevent and control diseases, to promote animal welfare, and protect public health in the face of future disasters is overdue.

    Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) lower respiratory tract disease (LRD) is a life-threatening complication in hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) recipients. Lymphopenia has been associated with an increased risk of progression from upper respiratory tract infection (URI) to LRD. This study retrospectively analyzed the significance of lymphocyte engraftment dynamics, lung function, smoking history, corticosteroids, antiviral treatment, viral subtypes, and RSV-specific neutralizing antibodies for the progression to LRD in 181 HCT recipients with RSV URI. In multivariable models, smoking history, conditioning with high-dose total body irradiation, and an absolute lymphocyte count (ALC) ≤100/mm(3) at the time of URI onset were significantly associated with disease progression. No progression occurred in patients with ALCs of >1000/mm(3) at URI onset. Lymphocyte engraftment dynamics were similar in progressors and nonprogressors. Pre- and posttransplant donor and posttransplant recipient RSV subtype-specific neutralizing antibody levels, RSV viral subtypes, and corticosteroids also were not significantly associated with LRD progression. Host and transplant related factors appear to determine the risk of progression to LRD more than viral factors. Dysfunctional cell-mediated immunity appears to be important in the pathogenesis of progressive RSV disease after HCT. A characterization of RSV-specific T-cell immunity is warranted.

    The Minimal Information Requested In the Annotation of biochemical Models (MIRIAM) is a set of guidelines for the annotation and curation processes of computational models, in order to facilitate their exchange and reuse. An important part of the standard consists in the controlled annotation of model components, based on Uniform Resource Identifiers. In order to enable interoperability of this annotation, the community has to agree on a set of standard URIs, corresponding to recognised data types. MIRIAM Resources are being developed to support the use of those URIs. MIRIAM Resources are a set of on-line services created to catalogue data types, their URIs and the corresponding physical URLs (or resources), whether data types are controlled vocabularies or primary data resources. MIRIAM Resources are composed of several components: MIRIAM Database stores the information, MIRIAM Web Services allows to programmatically access the database, MIRIAM Library provides an access to the Web Services and MIRIAM Web Application is a way to access the data (human browsing) and also to edit or add entries. The project MIRIAM Resources allows an easy access to MIRIAM URIs and the associated information and is therefore crucial to foster a general use of MIRIAM annotations in computational models of biological processes.

    The suitability of employing AIR Inhaled Insulin (AIR Insulin; AIR is a registered trademark of Alkermes) during acute upper respiratory tract infection (URI) has not been determined. Twenty-one healthy, non-diabetic subjects were enrolled in a single-sequence, two-period, euglycemic clamp study. Subjects received a single 12 U-equivalent dose of AIR Insulin before rhinovirus (RV16) inoculation and during symptomatic infection. Spirometry was used to evaluate pulmonary safety. AIR Insulin exposure (the area under the immunoreactive insulin (IRI) concentration vs time curve from time zero until the IRI concentrations returned to the predose baseline value (AUC(0-t'))) and glucodynamic response (total amount of glucose infused (G(tot))) were comparable before and during RV infection (AUC(0-t') 46,300 vs 52,600 pmol min/l, P=0.21; G(tot) 61,800 vs 68,700 mg, P=0.42, respectively). Variability of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic parameters did not change during URI; either did the number or intensity of adverse events. No significant change in forced expiratory volume or forced vital capacity was observed following AIR Insulin administration or during URI. The AIR Insulin system provides similar pharmacokinetic and glucodynamic responses under conditions of an experimentally induced RV infection and is regarded as suitable for use in diabetic patients during URIs.

    Full Text Available A chemically-modified electrode has been constructed based on a single walled carbon nanotube/chitosan/room temperature ionic liquid nanocomposite modified glassy carbon electrode (SWCNTs–CHIT–RTIL/GCE. It was demonstrated that this sensor could be used for simultaneous determination of acetaminophen (ACT, uric acid (URI and ascorbic acid (ASC. The measurements were carried out by application of differential pulse voltammetry (DPV, cyclic voltammetry (CV and chronoamperometry (CA methods. Electrochemical studies suggested that the RTIL and SWCNTs provided a synergistic augmentation that can increase current responses by improvement of electron transfers of these compounds on the electrode surface. The presence of the CHIT in the modified electrode can enhance the repeatability of the sensor by its antifouling effect. The modified electrode showed electrochemical responses with high sensitivity for ACT, URI and ASC determination, which makes it a suitable sensor for simultaneous sub-μmol L−1 detection of ACT, URI and ASC in aqueous solutions. The analytical performance of this sensor has been evaluated for detection of ACT, URI and ASC in human serum and urine with satisfactory results.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The Minimal Information Requested In the Annotation of biochemical Models (MIRIAM is a set of guidelines for the annotation and curation processes of computational models, in order to facilitate their exchange and reuse. An important part of the standard consists in the controlled annotation of model components, based on Uniform Resource Identifiers. In order to enable interoperability of this annotation, the community has to agree on a set of standard URIs, corresponding to recognised data types. MIRIAM Resources are being developed to support the use of those URIs. Results MIRIAM Resources are a set of on-line services created to catalogue data types, their URIs and the corresponding physical URLs (or resources, whether data types are controlled vocabularies or primary data resources. MIRIAM Resources are composed of several components: MIRIAM Database stores the information, MIRIAM Web Services allows to programmatically access the database, MIRIAM Library provides an access to the Web Services and MIRIAM Web Application is a way to access the data (human browsing and also to edit or add entries. Conclusions The project MIRIAM Resources allows an easy access to MIRIAM URIs and the associated information and is therefore crucial to foster a general use of MIRIAM annotations in computational models of biological processes.

    The Great East Japan Earthquakes of March 11, 2011 caused immense harm to the community and subsequent nuclear accident in Fukushima Prefecture extended the damage. Local residents were forced to evacuated without pets and the left behind animals were rescued from the restricted zone one month later. Unplanned animal rescue and unregulated sheltering caused secondary damage to animals such as disease epidemics at impounded animal shelter. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the incidence of upper respiratory infection (URI) and diarrhea in cats at the first response animal shelter in Fukushima, and investigate factors affecting the duration of disease and determinants of treatments performed. Eighty percent and 59% of impounded cats developed URI, 71% and 54% of cats developed diarrhea, and 91% and 83% of cats had at least one disease in 2011 and 2012, respectively. Uses of multiple drug administration (more than five drugs) was associated with prolonged URI and diarrhea. Multiple antibiotics, antihistamines, interferon, and steroids were associated with relapse of and prolonged URI. Developing a standardized treatment protocol for commonly observed diseases at Japanese animal shelters to prevent and control diseases, to promote animal welfare, and protect public health in the face of future disasters is overdue.

    Prior studies have evaluated factors predictive of inappropriate antibiotic prescription for upper respiratory tract infections (URIs). Community factors, however, have not been examined. The aim of this study was to evaluate the roles of patient, clinician, and community factors in predicting appropriate management of URIs in children. We used a novel database exchange, linking electronic health record data with community statistics, to identify all patients aged 3 months to 18 years in whom URI was diagnosed in the period from 2007 to 2012. We followed the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) quality measurement titled "Appropriate treatment for children with upper respiratory infection" to determine the rate of appropriate management of URIs. We then stratified data across individual and community characteristics and used multiple logistic regression modeling to identify variables that independently predicted antibiotic prescription. Of 20,581 patients, the overall rate for appropriate management for URI was 93.5%. Family medicine clinicians (AOR = 1.5; 95% CI 1.31, 1.71; reference = pediatric clinicians), urgent care clinicians (AOR = 2.23; 95% CI 1.93, 2.57; reference = pediatric clinicians), patients aged 12 to 18 years (AOR = 1.44; 95% CI 1.25, 1.67; reference = age 3 months to 4 years), and patients of white race/ ethnicity (AOR = 1.83; 95% CI 1.41, 2.37; reference = black non-Hispanic) were independently predictive of antibiotic prescription. No community factors were independently predictive of antibiotic prescription. Results correlate with prior studies in which non-pediatric clinicians and white race/ethnicity were predictive of antibiotic prescription, while association with older patient age has not been previously reported. Findings illustrate the promise of linking electronic health records with community data to evaluate health care disparities. © 2015 Annals of Family Medicine, Inc.

Samples of attic dust and topsoil were collected in localities in BiH (Zenica, Vareš and Ilijaš and Slovenia (Jesenice, Štore and Ravne.Analysis for 42 chemical elements was performed. Based on a comparison of statistical parameters, spatial distribution of particular elements and results of cluster analysis one natural and two anthropogenic geochemical associations were identified. The natural geochemical association (Al-K-La-Sc-Th-Ti is influenced mainly by lithology. The anthropogenic association (Co-Cr-Mo-Ni-V-W is the result of iron metallurgy in the past. The second anthropogenic association (Ag-As-Cd-Fe-Hg-Mn-Pb-Sb-Sn-Zn is the result of high level of sulphide phase in iron ore (Vareš and zinc and sulphuric acid production in the Celje area.

    In Europe, the data requirements for the hazard and exposure characterisation of chemicals are defined according to the REACH regulation and its guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), and its guidance documents; available at: http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2006:396:0001:0849:EN:PDF ; and at: http://guidance.echa.europa.eu/docs/guidance_document/information_requirements_en.htm ). This is the basis for any related risk assessment. The standard reference for the testing of cosmetic ingredients is the SCCP's 'Notes of Guidance for the Testing of Cosmetic Ingredients and their Safety Evaluation' (The SCCP's Notes of Guidance for the testing of cosmetic ingredients and their safety evaluation (2006); available at: http://ec.europa.eu/health/ph_risk/committees/04_sccp/docs/sccp_o_03j.pdf ), which refers to the OECD guidelines for the testing of chemicals (The OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals as a collection of the most relevant internationally agreed testing methods used by government, industry and independent laboratories to assess the safety of chemical products; available at: http://www.oecd.org/topic/0,2686,en_2649_34377_1_1_1_1_37407,00.html ). According to the cosmetics directive [76/768/EEC], compounds that are classified as mutagenic, carcinogenic or toxic to reproduction are banned for the use in cosmetic products.

    The diagnosis of acute bacterial sinusitis can be challenging because symptoms of acute sinusitis and an upper respiratory tract infection (URI) overlap. A rapid test, if accurate in differentiating sinusitis from URI, could be helpful in the diagnostic process. We examined the utility of nasopharyngeal cultures in identifying the subgroup of children with a clinical diagnosis of acute sinusitis who are least likely to benefit from antimicrobial therapy (those with completely normal sinus radiographs). Nasopharyngeal swabs were collected from 204 children meeting a priori clinical criteria for acute sinusitis. All children had sinus X-rays at the time of diagnosis. To determine if negative nasopharyngeal culture results could reliably identify the subgroup of children with normal radiographs, we calculated negative predictive values and negative likelihood ratios. Absence of pathogens in the nasopharynx was not helpful in identifying this low-risk subgroup.

  17. Old Romanian pluralized mass and abstract nouns

    2017-09-01

    Full Text Available The analysis of a rich old Romanian corpus shows that the ‘pluralization’ of mass and abstract nouns is extremely frequent in old Romanian. The semantic effects of pluralization are similar for mass and abstract nouns, consisting in the creation of denotative and/or connotative semantic variants. Of the plural endings, –uri is specialized for the pluralization of mass nouns in Daco-Romanian. The evolution of the ending –uri illustrates the specific process by which a grammatical (plural morpheme is converted into a lexical morpheme (the so-called ‘lexical plurals’. ‘Lexical plurals’ have isolated occurrences in other Romance languages, but they have not reached the spread and regularity they display in Romanian.

    Human metapneumovirus (hMPV) causes upper and lower respiratory tract infections (URIs and LRIs, respectively) in healthy and immunocompromised patients; however, its clinical burden in patients with cancer remains unknown. In a retrospective study of all laboratory-confirmed hMPV infections treated at the authors' institution between April 2012 and May 2015, clinical characteristics, risk factors for progression to an LRI, treatment, and outcomes in patients with cancer were determined. In total, 181 hMPV infections were identified in 90 patients (50%) with hematologic malignancies (HMs), in 57 (31%) hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) recipients, and in 34 patients (19%) with solid tumors. Most patients (92%) had a community-acquired infection and presented with URIs (67%), and 43% developed LRIs (59 presented with LRIs and 19 progressed from a URI to an LRI). On multivariable analysis, an underlying HM (adjusted odds ratio [aOR], 3.11; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.12-8.64; P = .029), nosocomial infection (aOR, 26.9; 95% CI, 2.79-259.75; P = .004), and hypoxia (oxygen saturation [SpO2], ≤ 92%) at presentation (aOR, 9.61; 95% CI, 1.98-46.57; P = .005) were identified as independent factors associated with LRI. All-cause mortality at 30 days from hMPV diagnosis was low (4%), and patients with LRIs had a 10% mortality rate at day 30 from diagnosis; whereas patients with URIs had a 0% mortality rate. hMPV infections in patients with cancer may cause significant morbidity, especially for those with underlying HM who may develop an LRI. Despite high morbidity and the lack of directed antiviral therapy for hMPV infections, mortality at day 30 from this infection remained low in this studied population.

    The recent focus on collaborative relationships in health care means that people and groups must cooperate to accomplish clinical and management tasks. This increasing interdependence may also cause increased organizational conflict. The management of conflicts is critical to the effectiveness of an organization. Negotiating strategies, based on Fisher and Ury's method of "principled negotiation," include establishing superordinate goals, separating the people from the problem, focussing on interests, inventing options, using objective criteria and defining success in terms of gains.

    Few epidemiological studies have been reported as to whether there was any interactive effect between temperature and humidity on respiratory morbidity, especially in Asian countries. The present study used time-series analysis to explore the modification effects of humidity on the association between temperature and emergency room (ER) visits for respiratory, upper respiratory tract infection (URI), pneumonia, and bronchitis in Beijing between 2009 and 2011. Results showed that an obvious joint effect of temperature and humidity was revealed on ER visits for respiratory, URI, pneumonia, and bronchitis. Below temperature threshold, the temperature effect was stronger in low humidity level and presented a trend fall with humidity level increase. The effect estimates per 1 °C increase in temperature in low humidity level were -2.88 % (95 % confidence interval (CI) -3.08, -2.67) for all respiratory, -3.24 % (-3.59, -2.88) for URI, -1.48 % (-1.93, -1.03) for pneumonia, and -3.79 % (-4.37, -3.21) for bronchitis ER visits, respectively. However, above temperature threshold, temperature effect was greater in high humidity level and trending upward with humidity level increasing. In high humidity level, a 1 °C increase in temperature, the effect estimates were 1.84 % (1.55, 2.13) for all respiratory, 1.76 % (1.41, 2.11) for URI, and 7.48 % (4.41, 10.65) for bronchitis ER visits. But, there was no statistically significant for pneumonia. This suggests that the modifying effects of the humidity should be considered when analyzing health impacts of temperature.

    Based on the actual medical records of ambulatory care visits, this study analyzed patients' healthcare seeking behavior and doctor shopping behavior (DSB), and investigated the underlying factors and the impact on the depletion of the healthcare resources for health policy makers to build a better health delivery system. Among a cohort comprised of 200,000 patients randomly chosen from the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan in 2004, only the patients seeking ambulatory care visits for upper respiratory tract infection (URI) were analyzed. Among the 45,951 URI patients, 2875 of them exhibited DSB (prevalence 6.3%). The DSB showed a reverse U-shaped relationship with the patient age (the highest DSB in age 18-34 years). The episodes of the URI had a negative impact on the DSB. The odds ratios of gender and the frequency of consultation versus DSB were 1.10 and 4.72, respectively, and the depletion of days of medication and repeat prescription increased with doctor shopping. Health education to raise DSB awareness is necessary, especially for female's age 18-34 years. Implementing a proper referral system with efficient data exchange, setting up control parameters in the IC cards, and strengthening the integrated care plan could reduce the unnecessary waste of the healthcare resources.

  3. Extending Primitive Spatial Data Models to Include Semantics

    Science.gov (United States)

    Reitsma, F.; Batcheller, J.

    2009-04-01

    Our traditional geospatial data model involves associating some measurable quality, such as temperature, or observable feature, such as a tree, with a point or region in space and time. When capturing data we implicitly subscribe to some kind of conceptualisation. If we can make this explicit in an ontology and associate it with the captured data, we can leverage formal semantics to reason with the concepts represented in our spatial data sets. To do so, we extend our fundamental representation of geospatial data in a data model by including a URI in our basic data model that links it to our ontology defining our conceptualisation, We thus extend Goodchild et al's geo-atom [1] with the addition of a URI: (x, Z, z(x), URI) . This provides us with pixel or feature level knowledge and the ability to create layers of data from a set of pixels or features that might be drawn from a database based on their semantics. Using open source tools, we present a prototype that involves simple reasoning as a proof of concept. References [1] M.F. Goodchild, M. Yuan, and T.J. Cova.

    This study was conducted to estimate the prevalence of antimicrobial prescribing for acute upper respiratory tract infections (URI) among pediatric outpatients and to identify the national patterns of its use from 2009 to 2011 in Korea. Using National Patients Sample database from 2009 to 2011, we estimated the frequency of antibiotics prescribing for URI in pediatric outpatients with diagnoses of acute nasopharyngitis (common cold), acute sinusitis, acute pharyngitis, acute tonsillitis, acute laryngitis/tracheitis, acute obstructive laryngitis/epiglottitis, and acute upper respiratory infections of multiple and unspecified sites. The proportions of each antibiotic class were calculated by year and absolute and relative differences were estimated. Also, we investigated daily amount of prescribed antibiotics per defined population according to the type of medical care institution, physician specialty, and geographic region. The overall antibiotic prescribing proportion was 58.7% and its annual proportion slightly decreased (55.4% in 2011 vs. 60.5% in 2009; adjusted odds ratio, 0.82; 95% confidence interval, 0.82-0.83). Variations by the type of medical care institution were observed. Tertiary hospitals (45.0%) were less likely to prescribe antibiotics than primary care clinics (59.4%), hospitals (59.0%), and general hospitals (61.2%); they showed different tendencies in choosing antibiotics. Variations by physician specialty and region were also observed. Prevalence of antimicrobial prescribing for pediatric URI is still considered higher than that of western countries and varies by the type of medical care institution, physician specialty, and geographic region.

Beside private consumption, for the VAR method, the Turkish GDP data is employed for the same periods. Later, the seasonality and stationarity analyses are run for these two series. The series are seasonally adjusted by the additive decomposition method and found as I(1. In the following steps, the ex post forecast models of these methods are established. Forecast outputs are evaluated by the criteria of MAE, MAPE, MSE, RMSE and Theil U. In conclusion of this analysis, the combining model of VAR-ES is found the best among others.

    2016-11-01

    Output voltage drifting observed in one typical capacitive microelectromechanical system (MEMS) accelerometer is discussed in this paper. Dielectric charging effect is located as one of the major determinants of this phenomenon through a combination of experimental and theoretical studies. A theoretical model for the electromechanical effects of the dielectric surface charges within the electrode gap is established to analyze the dielectric charge effect on the output voltage. Observations of output voltage drift against time are fitted to this model in order to estimate the possible dielectric layer thickness. Meanwhile, Auger electron spectroscopy is carried out to analyze the electrode surface material composition and confirms a mixture layer of dielectric SiO2 and Si with a thickness about 5 nm, which is very close to the model estimation. In addition, observation of time-varing output drift in the variable bias voltage experiment indicates the movement of dielectric charge can be controlled by the applied electric field.

    2013-09-20

    An update to a previous report is presented here describing the startup condition of a continuous dissolver. The need for a careful implementation of a startup condition is twofold. First, by varing the used fuel composition and various other parameters of the model, it becomes difficult to solve the governing equations accurately or to obtain a converged solution for an arbitrary initial condition. This is evident when coupling the dissolver module with a third-party user simulator. The second impetus for improving the modeling of the startup process is that an improved realism is obtained and the model is more complete and useful for accounting material balances rigorously. The aforementioned previous report on this dissolver module is a required reading for the understanding of this update.

    The distribution and geochemistry of rare earth elements (REE) in anthropogenic, technogenic and natural surface waters of southern and eastern Primorye, Far East of Russia, are presented in this study. The obtained results indicated that most of REE (up to 70%) were transported as suspended matter, ratio between dissolved and suspended forms varing from the source to the mouth of rivers. It is shown that all REE (except Ce) in the source of the rivers are predominantly presented in dissolved form, however, the content of light and heavy REE is different. Short-term enrichment of light rare earth elements (LREE) caused by REE-rich runoff from waste dumps and mining is neutralized by the increase in river flow rate. Rivers in urban areas are characterized by high content of LREE in dissolved form and very low in suspended one.

  15. Vocabulary services to support scientific data interoperability

    Science.gov (United States)

    Cox, Simon; Mills, Katie; Tan, Florence

    2013-04-01

    Shared vocabularies are a core element in interoperable systems. Vocabularies need to be available at run-time, and where the vocabularies are shared by a distributed community this implies the use of web technology to provide vocabulary services. Given the ubiquity of vocabularies or classifiers in systems, vocabulary services are effectively the base of the interoperability stack. In contemporary knowledge organization systems, a vocabulary item is considered a concept, with the "terms" denoting it appearing as labels. The Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) formalizes this as an RDF Schema (RDFS) application, with a bridge to formal logic in Web Ontology Language (OWL). For maximum utility, a vocabulary should be made available through the following interfaces: * the vocabulary as a whole - at an ontology URI corresponding to a vocabulary document * each item in the vocabulary - at the item URI * summaries, subsets, and resources derived by transformation * through the standard RDF web API - i.e. a SPARQL endpoint * through a query form for human users. However, the vocabulary data model may be leveraged directly in a standard vocabulary API that uses the semantics provided by SKOS. SISSvoc3 [1] accomplishes this as a standard set of URI templates for a vocabulary. Any URI comforming to the template selects a vocabulary subset based on the SKOS properties, including labels (skos:prefLabel, skos:altLabel, rdfs:label) and a subset of the semantic relations (skos:broader, skos:narrower, etc). SISSvoc3 thus provides a RESTFul SKOS API to query a vocabulary, but hiding the complexity of SPARQL. It has been implemented using the Linked Data API (LDA) [2], which connects to a SPARQL endpoint. By using LDA, we also get content-negotiation, alternative views, paging, metadata and other functionality provided in a standard way. A number of vocabularies have been formalized in SKOS and deployed by CSIRO, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) and their

Moench root, and Eleutherococcus senticosus (Rupr. & Maxim.) Harms root. It is approved in Scandinavia as an herbal medicinal product for respiratory tract infection treatment. The present clinical trial aimed to compare the antitussive effect of KJ with placebo (PL) and bromhexine (BH) among patients of 18-65 years old with non-complicated upper respiratory infections (URI; i.e., common cold). We performed a parallel-group, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial in in 177 patients with acute URI over a 5 day period. We investigated the antitussive effects of a KJ (30 ml/day; 762 mg genuine extracts with standardized contents of 0.2 mg/ml vasicine, 0.8 mg/ml chicoric acid, and 0.03 mg/ml eleutherosides B and E), bromhexine hydrochloride (24 mg/30 ml/day) and PL on cough and blood markers. The primary outcome was cough relief, which was assessed as the change of cough frequency from baseline (cough index). Secondary outcomes were safety with regards to reported adverse events (AEs) and hematological data. Both KJ and BH relieved cough more effectively than placebo. On the third and fourth days of treatment, we observed faster improvement in the group receiving KJ compared to in the groups receiving BH (100%) or PL (100%), indicating a slightly shorter recovery time in the KJ group. KJ showed a good tolerability and safety profile. KJ exerted significant antitussive effects in URI. The present data further support the therapeutic use of KJ in upper respiratory tract infections.

    Full Text Available The aim of this study was: to describe typical training load (TL carried out by a professional female futsal team for a period of 5 weeks; and to verify the relationship between TL, stress symptoms, salivary secretory immunoglobulin A (SIgA levels, and symptoms of upper respiratory infections (URI. Over 45 sessions, the TL of the athletes was monitored daily by means of session-RPE method during the in-season period prior to the main national competition. Stress symptoms were measured weekly by means of the “Daily Analysis of Life Demands in Athletes Questionnaire” (DALDA, SIgA levels, and by symptoms of URI by the “Wisconsin Upper Respiratory Symptom Survey-21” (WURSS. There was a significant increase in TL, monotony, and training strain in week 3, with a concomitant and significant reduction in percentage variation (Δ% of SIgA concentration and secretion rate (p < 0.05. Additionally, a second order regression model showed a high goodness of fit (R2 = 0.64 - 0.89 between TL and strain with SIgA concentration, secretion rate, and “worse than normal” responses of stress symptoms from the questionnaire. In conclusion, a link between TL and SIgA levels, and stress symptoms in female futsal players was evident in a non linear fashion. There appears to be an optimal range of values of daily TL between ~343 and ~419 AU and strain between ~2639 and 3060 AU, because at levels below and above these values there was an increase in stress symptoms and above ~435 and ~3160 AU to TL and strain there were a decrease in SIgA levels. In contrast, symptoms of URI failed to demonstrate relationship with the variables studied.

    National guidelines have recommended against codeine use in children, but little is known about prescribing patterns in the United States. Our objectives were to assess changes over time in pediatric codeine prescription rates in emergency departments nationally and to determine factors associated with codeine prescription. We performed a serial cross-sectional analysis (2001-2010) of emergency department visits for patients ages 3 to 17 years in the nationally representative National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey. We determined survey-weighted annual rates of codeine prescriptions and tested for linear trends over time. We used multivariate logistic regression to identify characteristics associated with codeine prescription and interrupted time-series analysis to assess changes in prescriptions for upper respiratory infection (URI) or cough associated with two 2006 national guidelines recommending against its use for these indications. The proportion of visits (N = 189 million) with codeine prescription decreased from 3.7% to 2.9% during the study period (P = .008). Odds of codeine prescription were higher for children ages 8 to 12 years (odds ratio [OR], 1.42; 95% confidence interval [1.21-1.67]) and among providers outside the northeast. Odds were lower for children who were non-Hispanic black (OR, 0.67 [0.56-0.8]) or with Medicaid (OR, 0.84 [0.71-0.98]). The 2006 guidelines were not associated with a decline in codeine prescriptions for cough or URI visits. Although there was a small decline in codeine prescription over 10 years, use for cough or URI did not decline after national guidelines recommending against its use. More effective interventions are needed to prevent codeine prescription to children. Copyright © 2014 by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

    Many physicians believe that advanced practice clinicians (APCs [nurse practitioners and physician assistants]) provide care of relatively lower value. To compare use of low-value services among U.S. APCs and physicians. Service use after primary care visits was evaluated for 3 conditions after adjustment for patient and provider characteristics and year. Patients with guideline-based red flags were excluded and analyses stratified by office- versus hospital-based visits, acute versus nonacute presentations, and whether clinicians self-identified as the patient's primary care provider (PCP). National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS) and National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS), 1997 to 2011. Patients presenting with upper respiratory infections (URIs), back pain, or headache. Use of guideline-discordant antibiotics (for URIs), radiography (for URIs and back pain), computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) (for headache and back pain), and referrals to other physicians (for all 3 conditions). 12 170 physician and 473 APC office-based visits and 13 359 physician and 2947 APC hospital-based visits were identified. Although office-based clinicians saw similar patients, hospital-based APCs saw younger patients (mean age, 42.6 vs. 45.0 years; P care; NAMCS samples physician practices and likely underrepresents office-based APCs. APCs and physicians provided an equivalent amount of low-value health services, dispelling physicians' perceptions that APCs provide lower-value care than physicians for these common conditions.

    Antibiotics are commonly recognized as non-indicated for acute bronchitis and upper respiratory tract infection (URI), yet their widespread use persists. Clinical decision support in the form of electronic warnings is hypothesized to prevent non-indicated prescriptions. The purpose of this study was to identify the effect of clinical decision support on a common type of non-indicated prescription. Using National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey data from 2006 to 2010, ambulatory visits with a primary diagnosis of acute bronchitis or URI and orders for antibiotic prescriptions were identified. Visits were classified on the basis of clinician report of decision-support use. Generalized estimating equations were used to assess the effect of decision support on likelihood of antibiotic prescription receipt, controlling for patient, provider, and practice characteristics. Clinician use of decision support increased sharply between 2006 (16% of visits) and 2010 (55%). Antibiotic prescribing for acute bronchitis and URI increased from ∼35% of visits in 2006 to ∼45% by 2010. Use of decision support was associated with a 19% lower likelihood of receiving an antibiotic prescription, controlling for patient, provider, and practice characteristics. In spite of the increased use of decision-support systems and the relatively fewer non-indicated antibiotic prescriptions resulting from the use of decision support, a secular upward trend in non-indicated antibiotic prescribing offset these improvements. The overall effect of decision support suggests an important role for technology in reducing non-indicated prescriptions. Decision support alone may not be sufficient to eliminate non-indicated prescriptions given secular trends. Published by the BMJ Publishing Group Limited.
